Cancelled – Artist Talk: Melanie Stevens

December 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This program has been cancelled. Please check back for future rescheduling.

Melanie Stevens is an artist, illustrator, and writer. She is the creator of the graphic novel series WaterShed and is the co-founder of Nat Turner Project, a migratory gallery space that grants artists of color the freedom to create or express their own language within and without the parameters of racial commodification or designation. She is also the cofounder of Miss Anthology, an organization that supports and publishes racially and economically diverse young comic artists who identify as LGBTQIA+ or female.

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.
