Join us for the opening reception of Dig and Rise featuring new works by 2022-2023 Kala Fellowship and Media Arts Fellowship artists: Lani Asunción, Meghana Bisineer, Paola de la Calle, Rayelle Janell Gardner, Sungjae Lee, Jessica Doe (née Mehta, Tyner), Nasim Moghadam, Khadijah Morley, Rosa Park, Sass Popoli (2021-2022 Fellow), and Trina Michelle Robinson.
Dig and Rise celebrates diverse voices and research, with a focus on resilience and hope that each artist in the exhibition carries and amplifies through their projects. While thinking about the work and title of the exhibition, many powerful poets and musicians came to my mind. Still I Rise by Maya Angelou, A Center by Ha Jin and music by Miles Davis are just a few examples of work that empowers audiences through creativity, message, passion and resilience. Art – poetry, music, writing, visual art, moving images, and in many other formats – can create significant ripple effects calling attention to important issues and inviting audiences to take action.
