flyer for Art as Impact

Art as Impact is a two-part program organized by Art History and Museum Professions student Angelica Pomar that engages topics like art advocacy, educational initiatives, and social justice in dialogue.

Pomar will be in conversation with three established creative art professionals: Theresa Sotto, associate director of academic programs at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Veronica Alvarez, director of the CalArts Community Arts Partnership Program, Los Angeles, and Carli Beseau, executive director of exhibits and programs at the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Development Corporation in New York.

The program is meant to spark conversation around these questions: How can we create a more inclusive college community through exhibitions, programming, and resources? How can we bridge college communities and public art projects together when addressing ideas of creating spaces for conversations around social justice? The program facilitates dialogues about social justice and change that can be emulated through exhibiting, programming, and education.

Program dates:

Tuesday, April 20, 6 pm: In conversation with Theresa Sotto and Veronica Alvarez: This conversation will discuss the intersection of education and justice, along with how one can be an activist through art, and the importance of being socially engaged on a college campus.

Tuesday, April 27, 6 pm: In conversation with Carli Beseau: This conversation will talk about the role of an arts professional and what it means to be an artist advocate. We’ll also discuss Beseau’s experience supporting a community of artists even amidst the pandemic.
