Creative Expressions: Stories We Want to Tell - Community, Ethics, and Artistic Expression - July 9, 2020
Creative Expressions: Stories We Want to Tell - Community, Ethics, and Artistic Expression
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 5-6pm
The SUNY Empire community has a rich and varied artist community. Join us each week to meet our faculty, staff, student, and alumni artists to learn a little about their creative expressions, their process, and them. Our artists hold a Q&A session following their presentations/performances. Creative Expressions happen every Thursday at 5pm in Zoom at this link.
Featured on Thursday, July 9th are presentations by Kyle Adams and Barrie Cline exploring community building through the arts, ethical representation, and the arts as a means of expressing things that are just too hard to express in words. Kyle will speak about his approach to photography. Barrie will share her work with the Worker's Arts Coalition.
Note: If you missed our previous sessions or cannot make it this week, all of the sessions are recorded. Check them out at this link.
Also, Creative Expressions now has a website that includes all our previous sessions and plans for future sessions.
Weekly Host: Lisa D’Adamo-Weinstein
