Clarissa Sligh Artist's Talk

As a part of Arts Fest 2017, a three day long festival to celebrate the arts hosted by UNC Asheville's Arts & Ideas program, acclaimed artist and Asheville resident Clarissa Sligh will be giving a free artist's talk! Themes of change, identity, and the environment can be found in many of Sligh’s works – whether it is a print or drawing, an installation, or an artistic publication. Sligh’s most recent book "Transforming Hate: An Artist’s Book" comes out of her installation for "Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate", a group exhibition organized and currently traveled by The Montana Human Rights Network and the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, Montana. The installation, which started in 2007, is a project comprised of creating origami cranes from pages of white supremacist books – words of hate. Sligh's talk will take place in the Glass House right beside UNC Asheville's Ramsey Library. For more information on Arts Fest and featured events, please visit: https://arts.unca.edu/arts-fest
