Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery is presenting Us + Them = U.S. Finding Common Ground in a Divided Nation, a powerful visual response confronting the division our country faces. A group of Washington DC area's most influential artists and activists will examine and investigate our nation's current political and cultural rift and explore how we can find a collective understanding through contemporary art-making methods.
A candid, introspective discussion with Curtators Dierdre Darden, Philippa PB Hughes and several participating artists will be speaking about their approach to this exhibition on February 11
ALSO: Artist Carolina Mayorga will be performing her piece: LADY LIBERTAD during this program (duration approx. 5-10 minutes).
