‘Art without Borders’ Program Offers Events to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage
                            
East Carolina University faculty members have partnered with the Greenville Museum of Art to offer public activities celebrating Hispanic heritage from Sept. 20 through Nov. 5.

Organized by Dr. Jennifer Valko (Foreign Languages and Literatures); Lisa Robinson (Art and Design) and Charlotte Fitz at the Greenville Museum of Art, Art without Borders introduces the work of local, national and international Latino artists.

Programs will include exhibits and discussions with award-winning Latino artists; photographer José Galvez and sculptor Eddie Dominguez; works by Peter Eversoll; panel discussions on immigration and border issues; a screening of the film “The Wind Journeys”; a children’s bilingual story-time and book-making event; and two concerts performed by Miami-based bands “Tiempo Libre” and “Spam Allstars.”

All events are open to the public and most events are free. Complimentary tickets to the concerts are available to ECU students with a valid ID and are $10 for the general public. Tickets are available through the Central Ticket Office by calling 1-800-ECU-ARTS.

For a complete listing of events and details, visit www.ecu.edu/awb or www.ecu.edu/asf (Spanish version). Advanced online registration is required for some activities.
