Reminder for all members’ to RSVP for this years’ Members’ Choice in which members are given the opportunity to help build the EPMA Collection. This year, members choose from 3 works of art by artist vanessa german.

The artist’s practice proposes new models for social healing, utilizing creativity and tenderness as vital forces to reckon with the historical and ongoing catastrophes of structural racism, white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, resource extraction, and misogynoir.
