"Over/come(ing)" Art Opening & CEAL Open House

Juliet Seignious
Friday, October 6, 2017
4:30-6:00 PM
2nd floor Weiser Hall Map
Juliet Seignious' powerful paintings were shaped by having witnessed Malcolm X speaking to crowds in her Harlem neighborhood and by her subsequent journey to explore her heritage through dance and art. As a founding member of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company and now as a painter, her artistic expression is powerful and compelling. The images in "Over/come(ing)" were inspired by John Lewis’ graphic novel series March and evoke the connections between past and current social justice and civil rights protests.

This event will also serve as a house warming for CEAL's new offices in Weiser Hall. This event is free and open to the campus community. Whether you are able to come for the artist's remarks (at 5:00) or you can only come by for a few minutes to view the paintings and have some hors d'oeuvres, all are welcome!
