Art Now! Lecture and Talkback with Maria Gaspar

Interdisciplinary artist Maria Gaspar will speak to the Columbia community as part of the new presenting series “Collective Impact.”

As part of the School of Fine and Performing Arts’ new annual presenting series Collective Impact, the Art and Art History Department’s Art Now! lecture series will welcome interdisciplinary artist Maria Gaspar to campus to speak to the Columbia community. Gaspar will share the foundation and outcomes of her work and lead classroom discussions.

Collective Impact is a new series designed to connect students to artists who model conscientious community engagement and who work to foster a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society. Gaspar, who works in sculpture, sound, and performance-based fields, is known for her 96 Acres project, which is a series of community-engaged, site-responsive installations that examine the impact of incarceration on communities of color at the Cook County Jail on Chicago’s West side.
