Join us for a conversation with current exhibiting artist Mizin Shin. Together, we’ll explore the artworks on view, and learn about the concepts and printmaking processes behind the work.
Mizin Shin’s exhibition, “Spoken and Seen #UseYourVoice,” features the artist’s new screen print series along with her current campaign, Use Your Voice #StopAsianHate—a response to rising rates of racially motivated prejudice and violence. Artist’s profits from exhibition sales will be donated to organizations supporting AAPI communities.
