Saturday, March 20
Speakers: Katie Ruíz, artist; Juan Carlos del Valle, realist painter; and Seth Sullivan, mixed media artist and creative director
Moderator: Alessandra Moctezuma, art professor and Gallery Director at San Diego Mesa College
Join the Latin American Art Council of The San Diego Museum of Art for a virtual panel discussion featuring creative experts of contemporary art to discuss the topic entitled, “How Art Provides a Conversation for Healing.” Under the climate of COVID-19, artists will not only impart the effects to their artistic expression in a distinct time not seen in recent generations, but also share how it has amplified social and civic crises. The big question is how art can provide a healthy conversation for healing.
The panel features three accomplished Hispanic artists: Katie Ruíz, an artist best known for her colorful Mexican blanket series; Juan Carlos del Valle, a realist painter who alters icons from contemporary myths such as processed food, toys, and amazing narratives with more than forty exhibitions presented from 2004 to 2017 in México, Perú, and the United States; and Seth Sullivan, a mixed media artist and creative director whose designs are inspired by nature. LAAC board member Alessandra Moctezuma, an art professor and Gallery Director at San Diego Mesa College, will be the moderator.
