"Our America, Our Stories" storytelling performance

Date

August 4 (Thursday)
"Our America, Our Stories" storytelling performance
6 p.m.

Throughout the month of July and using the exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art as inspiration, artist Lisa Facciponti has guided participants in a workshop of the fundamentals of constructing a story arc and preparing the vocal and physical aspects of performance. Tonight at 7 p.m., these personal narratives will become part of a storytelling performance in the Museum. 

The performance is free for Museum members, $5 for museum nonmembers or free with a canned good donation to benefit a local food pantry. This project was made possible through the AIE Partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
