The final event of the Art Illuminating Human Rights series, the December 3 event will focus on LGBTI rights, with readings that will include artist Andrea Jenkins, author  of The T is Not Silent.

Mia and the Advocates for Human Rights are collaborating this fall to present the series Art Illuminating Human Rights. This partnership was born out of both organizations’ shared commitment to bring greater awareness to human rights issues. Inspiration for the program’s format arises from the function of the kaleidoscope, which depends on light to create reflections. Just as tapping and twisting a kaleidoscope brings multi-faceted reflections into focus, Art Illuminating Human Rights will challenge participants to wrestle with the human rights issues of our day by considering the diversity of opinions brought to light in this forum.

In the second program of the series, music, poetry, and storytelling activate the galleries in this progressive performance that explores and interprets objects addressing human rights.

Events are free to the public; however space is limited. To make a reservation, call 612-870-6323 or reserve online.
