More Than Just Pretty: A Panel Discussion on Art & Advocacy
Some art is meant to be admired for its beauty and craftsmanship. Other art is designed to give you pause and allow you to experience something larger than yourself. Join us on October 18 from 5 - 8 pm for this panel discussion in Hillsboro will explore the intersection of art and advocacy, when there’s more to the work than meets the naked eye.
