‘Meet Your Neighbors: 
Feminine & LGBTQ+ Perspectives’

I’ve found that most non-art people are excited when they meet an artist. FYI: They live in your neighborhood, maybe even next door. “Meet Your Neighbors: Feminine & LGBTQ+ Perspectives” is a visual and performing arts event organized to promote conversations. The artists are Carrie Marie Burr, Tom Cannady, Ann Dawkins, Hannah Drake, Tessa Gartin, Dionne Griffiths, Judy Hanekamp, Ashley Renee Hoffman, Joshua Jenkins, Vivian Knox-Thompson, Michael Kopp, R.K. Lemmons-Weber, SK Lockhart, Leo Lopez, landras Moontree, Moriah Mudd-Kelly, Isabella Calliope Pearson and LaNia Roberts. Spoken word artists will perform Wednesday, Aug. 30 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Sept. 6 at the same time, Dr. Kaila Adia Story, associate professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Pan African Studies at UofL, will lead a conversation.

THROUGH SEPT. 15
