Artists, scholars, and community members come together to consider creative expression in relation to timely political and social concerns. Explore shifting perspectives on historic and contemporary immigrant and refugee experiences in Pittsburgh and beyond. In a complex and contentious era of border closures, anti-immigrant rhetoric, and isolationism, what role do artists play in maintaining the free exchange of ideas across cultural boundaries?

Panel participants include Betty Cruz, Founder of Change Agency; Tuhin Das, ICORN writer-in-residence at City of Asylum; Anne Madarasz, Director of the Curatorial Division, Chief Historian, and Director of the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum at the Heinz History Center; Grant Oliphant, President of The Heinz Endowments; and John Righetti, President of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society.

Free; registration is suggested for all free programs; visit warhol.org or call 412.237.8300

This event is co-presented with City of Asylum, Pittsburgh.
