Art in Translation Conversation

Center for the Arts, 265 S Cache Street
Refreshments to be provided
Home. Language. Identity.
These core elements define our sense of self and our feelings of belonging. It is through these constructs that we, as individuals and communities, tell our stories. But how can we reconcile describing home, language and identity in new or unfamiliar surroundings?
Art in Translation explores and considers the varied meanings of home, identity, and language in our community through artistic interpretation. The project is the first in a series of programming planned by the Art Association of Jackson Hole to engage our Latino community in meaningful art education that helps to span cultural differences and facilitates a conversation surrounding our shared experiences of living and working in Jackson Hole.
Join us for this exceptional opportunity to hear from the Art in Translation guest artists and the exhibition curator, together on one stage, in advance of the exhibition opening and reception on April 29th, starting at 5:30PM.
