Ver de lejos / To See From Afar

This month the Art Education and Community Arts Practices Department presents Ver de lejos/To See From Afar. 

Ver de lejos/To See from Afar is a show encapsulating work from the Mann Older Adult Center bilingual painting course, led by Jamie Forslund. These artists explore themes of memory, heritage, and beauty by connecting their lives in Philadelphia with memories of growing up in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and beyond.

Jamie Forslund graduated Tyler School of Art in 2015 with a Master of Education with a Major in Art. In addition to her work in the community, she currently teaches art at Christopher Columbus Charter School, School District of Philadelphia.
