Poster-Making Workshop

Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 4 p.m.

Join our artist-in-residence Nando Álvarez to create posters in this hands-on workshop. In 1968, residents and visitors in Resurrection City created temporary murals to express messages of solidarity in the civil rights struggle. Inspired by the Resurrection City mural our artists have created poster-making kits allowing visitors to combine activist imagery from 1968 with their own messages for 2018. 
 
Nando Álvarez is an Ecuadorian visual artist currently based in D.C. His artwork is moved by a complicated reflection on colonization, hegemony, patriarchy, white supremacy and other forms of oppression. A member of the social justice art collective The Sanctuaries, Álvarez connects directly with the community to make art that responds to practical needs for the struggle.
