      EVENT DETAILS
      Marta Pérez-García: Artist Talk and Workshop

      In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month join us for an artist talk and workshop with Puerto Rican artist Marta Pérez García where we will showcase holdings from the Library of Congress' collection. The event will conclude with a collective mural making activity with the artist.

      Marta’s work is known for its color and force where the feminine world mutates into savage nature, animal forms and repetitive patters. Her art establishes a dialogue with an enduring Caribbean baroque and contrasts the work of other graphic artists in Puerto Rico, also present in the Library's collection. Her work addresses the dichotomies of life and death and oppression and empowerment where elements of nature and symbols of culture intertwine in an unpredictable fusion of fierce colors and layered textures. Marta Pérez García will talk about her printmaking work in reduction process, the themes present in her work, and her role as an artist and activist.

      Due to space limitations, there are only a limited number of spaces available for the workshop portion of this event.

      Please request ADA accommodations at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ada@loc.gov.
