ECU ‘Art without Borders’ Program Offers Series of Events to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage

In celebration of Hispanic heritage, members of the faculty at East Carolina University have partnered with the Greenville Museum of Art and additional supporters to offer a slate of public activities beginning Sept. 20 and running through Nov. 5.

Organized by Dr. Jennifer Valko, professor in the ECU Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures; Lisa Robinson, from the ECU School of 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 with the goal of building and strengthening ties between the diverse groups that make up the community.

The series of programs offered will include exhibits and discussions with award-winning Latino artists, photographer José Galvez and sculptor Eddie Dominguez; an exhibit featuring 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.
