NoMAA Artists’ Salon: A Dialogue with Dominican Artists
Monday, February 22, 6-8pm
Highbridge Recreation Center,
2301 Amsterdam Avenue at 174th Street
The communities of Washington Heights and Inwood are known to be home for many Dominicans in New York City – but what do we know about the Dominican artists from these neighborhoods? The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance hosts a dialogue with Dominican artists during our upcoming NoMAA Artists’ Salon. In this event, we will learn about the work of various Dominican artists from the community and engage in a discussion on cultural identity and how their mediums reflect it, how their cultural productions are influenced by their surroundings uptown, and how their work helps shape the community.
