Leading With Artivism – Service, and the Rebirth of an Object (virtual)

July 29, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Arts Mid-Hudson for a talk with artivist Suprina. Allocating, modeling, casting, photography, and video are some of the processes Suprina uses in creating carnival-like narratives themed around politics, environment, and societal trends.
Q&A Session with Poet Gold will lead the evening’s conversation.
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP here!
Suprina studied sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia but gained the bulk of her knowledge of her craft from working in the field of promotional, prop making. Her clients included Annie Leibovitz, Apple Computer, Bloomingdales, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. After 9/11, having lived in the neighborhood at the time, Suprina decided she would focus solely on her own artworks, which discuss environmental, social and political issues.
She has shown in Chelsea, Central Park, Governors Island, Brooklyn, Chicago, Scottsdale, Harlem, Newark, Southampton and the Hudson Valley.
Suprina has received grants from The Puffin Foundation, LMCC, NoMAA, and two Decentralization grants from Arts Mid Hudson.
