Jr Mexico us border art social justice series - man standing in the road

Boston-based, independent street-art curator Pedro Alonzo will talk about previous projects in the Boston area with which our students have engaged. He will also discuss the latest work of French artist JR whose large public art installation is visible at the US-Mexico border and featured in the New York Times. Particularly in light of DACA and its charged political context, this presentation and community conversation is an urgent and timely one.

Part of the Art and Social Justice Series.
