Virtual First Friday at  Liberty Station Arts District

I can recommend that you take a look at this virtual event that the NTC Foundation sponsored. Although long, don’t miss the last 45 minutes with the interview of Hugo Crosthwaite. They presented a cross section of just some of the events going on at the Liberty Station Arts District.  

Host Andrew Waltz with Hugo Crosthwaite discussed his creation of the Installations at the Station mural, Column A and Column B: An improvised mural narrative performance bases on the separation of child from their parents created in 16 days. He also showed his video. "Tzompantli",  a stop-motion animation video. Lael Corbin and Perry Vasquez joined into the discussion which extended to the problems women have in crossing the border. We are defined by the stories we tell ourselves.
