Social Activism Through Art: Art Sparks with David Greene
In this Zoom event, Fleisher student David Greene will discuss his journey as an artist through social activism. As a longtime activist and educator, David understands that art has the potential to inspire community engagement, meaningful action, and deepen our connections. How can we empower and uplift one another while striving for a better way of life? How can art ignite problem solving and creative solutions?
David began exploring his talent as an artist in 2017 at the age of 71, following 10 years of increasingly severe health issues, including battles against three kinds of cancer. His life’s work as an educator encouraged adults to reflect on and learn from their experiences. In this, his first formal exhibit, David presents paintings that are reflections of his own life and work in New York, West Virginia, and Ohio as a community organizer, factory worker, and adult educator.
Katie Hulihan will be moderating this talk. Katie joined the Fleisher team through a yearlong fellowship with the Quaker Voluntary Service. She is a lifelong art lover from the Philadelphia area. Katie recently graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in film and media production.
