BRIDGE: Arts & Social Justice
Community Celebration 6-8pm
Harwood invites you to celebrate the 6th Annual Social Justice Program, presented in partnership with Carlos Contreras and Diahndra Grill of JustWrite (main gallery) and highlighting Eric Christo Martinez (front gallery). Featuring artists in transition and community members who have shared experiences of incarceration, addiction, state, and domestic violence, JustWrite’s interactive multimedia experience illustrates how art in community can bridge previously disconnected populations. Exhibitions run through September 24. This program is part of Umbrella Week.
