Building walls along borders are making national news, but at the Katzen Arts Center a local exhibit is about bridging borders. A new exhibition titled “The Looking Glass” highlights the work of ten artists from Latin America who now make their homes –and their living- in the D.C. region. We hear from two artists about how their experiences shape their art, and from the curator about the initiative highlighting the work of local artists.

Guests

  • Jack Rasmussen Director and Curator, American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center
