Local artist, Christine Sullivan, along with City of Santa Fe Culture Connects CARES invites you to join “Felt During Covid” a community art project that promotes Hope and Covid Safe Practices in Santa Fe. Get your art pack now by emailing [bot protected email address].

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

With this art pack you will make a 12×18 inch felt banner out of brightly colored felt swatches and letters (and any other mixed media you want to include) that expresses how you are feeling and what you can do about it, using one of the five “Santa Fe Promises.” See: www.santafenm.gov/promise

 

Completed felt banners will be posted at Instagram @feltduringcovid as well as at #feltduringcovid where you can share thoughts on your art-making process, post photos and videos.

What's My Legacy? Chicana/o Literature and Culture

in the American Southwest

 

Dr. Vanessa Fonseca-Chávez invites everyone to ponder individual and collective legacies as she discusses her recently published book Colonial Legacies in Chicana/o Literature and Culture: Looking through the Kaleidoscope. The Southwest U.S. is a region that has been colonized by Spain and the United States and we are often left to think about the kind of legacies these colonial periods have left behind. This book challenges readers to reflect on the fragmented and peripheral narratives of colonial legacies that offer more complex understandings of individual and collective subjectivities.

 

Monday, December 14 at 6 p.m. MST
