A conversation with Shaun Leonardo
MFTA Third Thursday
Thursday, July 16, 7-8pm
Join us online for a live conversation with NYC artist Shaun Leonardo and MFTA Education Director John Cloud Kaiser. In his work, Leonardo explores systemic oppression and police violence against black and brown boys and men. In this presentation, he will share the motivation behind the drawings, videos, and performance art pieces he creates. In addition, he will discuss his Assembly program done in partnership with the nonprofit Recess, which provides training and creative employment opportunities for court-involved youth.
MFTA invites guests to attend this presentation, as we reflect upon race, equity, and systemic issues. Attendees may take part in the conversation, which will be live streamed to YouTube by submitting questions for Shaun Leonardo during the event.
