Michelle Angela Ortiz is a visual artist/skilled muralist/community arts educator who uses her art as a vehicle to represent people and communities whose histories are often lost or co-opted. Through painting, printmaking, and community arts practices, she creates a safe space for dialogue around some of the most profound issues communities and individuals may face.
Ortiz’s presentation will focus on the power of transforming public spaces with imagery and messages that reflect the power of community stories. She will speak on her work as an artist engaging different communities for 20 years in the United States and abroad.
This event celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month.
Light refreshments will be served.
