Artist Talk: Sharyll Burroughs

October 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Sharyll Burroughs is a multidisciplinary artist and dialogue facilitator who is interested in transcending conventional beliefs about what identity means. She utilizes Buddhism, along with the practice of self-inquiry, to explore identity beyond racial, cultural, and societal definitions, an unorthodox approach that cultivates dialogues embodying our common humanity. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles and in Portland, where she now resides.

Join artists from a range of disciplines in the galleries for lively conversations about works of art on view at the Museum and how they relate to their own practices. The talks are followed by complimentary social hour in the museum cafe.

Program begins at 6 p.m. $5 members, $20 non-members, $17 seniors. Space is limited. Tickets available online or on site.
