Celebrating Character, Resiliency, Strength, and Joy
Artist Chanel Thervil's vivid portraits celebrate the essential character and spirit of her subjects. Join us on Tuesday, June 8, from 7 - 8:30pm via Zoom, to hear how she uses a combination of conversation and mixed media to develop an image that captures personality and life experience as well as a likeness. REGISTER HERE!
Thervil will talk about inspiration she finds in the positive energy and accomplishments of friends and neighbors, strong relationships, and Black joy. This talk is presented by the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Division, and Robbins Library to support "Elevating Arlington Voices of Color" a new collection highlighting the experiences and perspective of people of color living, working, or going to school in Arlington.
Chanel Thervil will be returning to Arlington for a public art project in August 2021 as the Arlington Commission for the Arts' third Artist-in-Residence. Join us in welcoming her! Learn more and register.
