In Dialogue: Art, Power, And Identity @ Trustee Room, Mark Building
Jan 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In Dialogue is an occasional series of interdisciplinary, discussion-based seminars that explore art on view at the Museum in relation to works in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. This seminar will investigate power and identity through the special exhibition Corita Kent: Spiritual Pop. Exploring both sacred and commercial texts, as well as commentary from times of radical institutional change, we will endeavor to reimagine the familiar in language and religion for the intertwined purposes of resistance and delight. For best results, bring a copy of a familiar sacred text, preferably encountered in childhood.

Seminar facilitator Elizabeth Harlan-Ferlo is a poet, teacher, and the curator of Interfaith Muse, an events series that explores spiritual questions through civic dialogue and creative arts. She holds a Certificate in Contextual Theology and an MFA in Poetry, and served as an Episcopal school chaplain for nine years. In that role, she created extensive curricula on religion, social justice, and intercultural competency. Her poetry has been published in many literary journals including Fourteen Hills, Anglican Theological Review, and Tupelo Quarterly. She facilitates the conversation “In Good Faith” for the Oregon Humanities Conversation Project.

This series is co-sponsored by Portland State University–University Studies.

Space is limited. Registration required.

Susan Pavel leads an afternoon of collective storytelling through an installment of her ongoing Weaving Words project. Pavel describes the experience: “Born from a place of love and community, the intention of Weaving Words is to bring a blanket loom to a gathering and invite participants to weave a weft of yarn and share a story beckoning to be told.” Through sharing stories with each other over the loom, participants are woven together through laughter, joy, pain, and sorrow.
