Points of View Speaker Series: The Mind, The Heart, and the Art

In conjunction with the Women’s Mobile Museum (WMM) exhibition, this discussion will prioritize mental and emotional well being as a sustaining principle for women seeking careers in the arts by highlighting how the inclusion of a culturally aware psychologist impacted ten women artists of different ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds as they navigated Philadelphia Photo Art Center’s year-long, paid apprenticeship in media arts. The panel will speak to the individual and institutional reckonings that occur within a project aspiring to break down economic, racial and social barriers, while challenging the lack of representation in the traditional art world. Moderated by artist Andrea Walls, panelists include project psychologist Dr. Kathleen Walls, Psy.D.; artist, Shana Roberts; and project manager, Lori Waselchuk.
