Aida Lizalde on art, activism and the undocumented community
Art Studio major Aida Lizalde and Associate Professor Natalia Deeb-Sossa will talk about how art teaches us about the unique experiences of the undocumented community at the Manetti Shrem Museum on June 6th. Aida and Natalia will also address how art might be mobilized as a strategic tool of resistance and an effective means of refusal to abide by state politics and legislation that deny undocumented immigrants a path to US Citizenship.
Aida Lizalde is a formerly undocumented childhood arrival and a studio art major currently attending UC Davis.
Natalia Deeb-Sossa is an Associate Professor in Chicano/a Studies, and a political refugee from Colombia who arrived in the US in 1995 to escape the violence.
