“Ethics and Masks” is a segment from “Masking”, an experimental documentary by Joellyn Rock, created during the evolving pandemic in June 2020. This segment features a short interview with Alexis Elder, Associate Professor of Philosophy, who researches Ethics and Technology. In her free time, Dr. Elder knits, crafts, and uses her skills to make masks when a pandemic calls.
Our second Arts Industry Panel is Tuesday, July 21 at 5-6pm! We are thrilled to announce our panel co-hosts: Carla Hamilton (visual artist), Jazmin Wong (musician and coordinator of Indigenous First Arts & Gifts shop at AICHO), Drew Digby (Executive Director of Arrowhead Regional Arts Council) and panel moderator: Faith King (writer, UMD Instructor, and volunteer artist at Pineapple Arts Supply & Studio). The panel hosts will discuss their recent work in the local arts scene, innovative exhibiting and selling ideas during the pandemic, and what we can expect in the arts-funding landscape moving forward. ⠀
Our first Arts Industry Social Hour is Tuesday, June 30 at 5-6pm! Artists Moira Villiard, Adam Swanson, and Ryan Tischer will cohost a panel that explores what it means to be an artist in 2020; sharing their ideas on exhibiting work virtually, staying connected with audience, and embracing community.
This interactive Zoom event features a 15 minute presentation from each artist followed by an open Q & A session. Amanda McElray Hunter will moderate this dynamic Arts Industry Social Hour panel. We will feature additional artists in future panels with the goal of offering a diversity of viewpoints and knowledge. Stay Tuned!
