In June of every year, CHIRLA commemorates our heritage by celebrating ‘Immigrant Heritage Month’ with a series of events and actions, one, in particular, is IMMI’ART, an annual art exhibition where we highlight the richness of our culture through the arts. Due to Coronavirus, this year we will be celebrating our art through ‘Artivism’, highlighting the works of three influential and culturally diverse artists, whose work has impacted our culture in one way or another.
IMMI’ARTivism will be a virtual event where three artists from different mediums will lead the conversation about social justice and racial inequality, and a retrospective to their work connected to activism. Art is power!
