Linking the New South is a community art project conducted by artist Diana Farfán that will be carried out during the opening of Palmetto Luna Arts’ Latino Arts Collection –Ten Years in the Making exhibition on September 6th.
Participants of this workshop will be able to drop in, collage and create pieces to be added to a collaborative, 3-dimensional art piece that will be on display throughout the Luna Arts Exhibition.
This collaborative installation explores the relationship between territory and human interaction. Linking the New South creates a tapestry of dozens of plexiglass acrobat figures designed, illustrated and installed by members of the community in partnership with the Richland Library and Palmetto Luna Arts. It covers the notion of how South Carolinians continue imagining and shaping together a better state for all.
Join us at 12pm for an introduction from Marina Lopez, oral historian and archivist at The Citadel Oral History Program. She will offer a short talk about the South Carolina Latinx community's experiences and history.
