"Table Talk" is a conversation with experts working to enhance and grow the Vanka Murals' mission to save and share the one-of-a-kind murals of immigrant artist Maxo Vanka in St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church in Millvale and to continue to connect the artist's message to contemporary society and issues. Every virtual presentation via Zoom Webinar will include a compelling conversation with one or more panelists on a topic related to the themes of Maxo Vanka's Murals. The 60-minute program includes an interactive Q&A session. Only one registration required per household.

Presented in collaboration with Hemispheric Conversations Urban Art Project (HCUAP) at the University of Pittsburgh, this month's program will focus on the collaborative mural project, Disrespecting the Border, that was created for the Latinx community of Pittsburgh in October 2019. We'll join a conversation about the role of mural art as a resource to think through migration and border politics between visiting artist Gil Rocha and local artists Leah Patgorski and Max Gonzales organized by Camilo Ruiz and Marisol Vilella Balderrama. The talk will be facilitated by Dr. Caitlin Bruce. Join us to hear about the dialogues, motifs, and collaborations that came out of the project and their salience today.
The program is free but registration is required. Donations to support the Vanka Murals mission including this program are greatly appreciated and may be added to your registration.
