Art and Conversation: Resist COVID and the Artist Fund
Join the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Sara Krajewski and Programs Lead, Jaleesa Johnston, in a review of the current exhibition, Resist COVID/Take 6!, an artist-driven public awareness campaign by internationally renowned artist and Portland native Carrie Mae Weems. In light of our year-long journey through quarantine, this program reviews the work and initiatives that have taken place under the Artist Fund in an effort to better support artists’ work during COVID.
Art and Conversation is a free monthly program that occurs every third Tuesday, featuring a range of speakers from Museum curators and staff, artists and Portland-based arts organizations. Please check back for more details on what this month’s Art and Conversation topic and time will be.
