Opening Exhibition – Hand-Picked: Art Expressions of Farmworkers Who Feed Us @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Oct 23 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

From June – October 2018, a series of three art workshops, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, was conducted for migrant farmworkers in eight counties of Western New York. These workshops culminated in an exhibit entitled, “Hand Picked: Art Expression of Farmworkers Who Feed Us.”

So often farmworkers are an invisible population in this country, yet they are invaluable to our communities and our economy, These workshops produced a gestalt of various aspects of the individual artists themselves, to pull away the veil, so that they can truly be seen as deeply feeling human beings who are gifted and talented, and dedicated to their families, communities, and their work. This vision for a traveling exhibit was designed to raise the awareness of all viewers toward a clear understanding of the inner and outer lives of migrant farmworkers in eight counties of Western New York. This exhibit also features six poems by Mexican and Puerto Rican participants in our literature program that was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts.

This exhibition is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts.

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.

Film: “Check It” @ Newton Hall Room 202 at SUNY Geneseo
Oct 24 @ 7:00 pm

The Alan Lutkus International Film Series Presents Cultural Harmony Week’s Fall 2019 “Identity in Action” Film Program

WHAT: Screening of the recent documentary Check It (U.S., Dana Flor and Toby Oppenheimer, 2016, 91 mins.). Presented by Dr. Mark Broomfield of the Department of Dance, SUNY Geneseo.

Synopsis: At first glance, they seem unlikely gang-bangers. Some of the boys wear lipstick and mascara, some stilettos. They carry Louis Vuitton bags, but they also carry knives, brass knuckles and mace. As vulnerable gay and transgender youth, they’ve been shot, stabbed, and raped. Once victims, they’ve now turned the tables, beating people into comas and stabbing enemies with ice picks. Started in 2009 by a group of bullied 9th graders, today these 14-22 year old gang members all have rap sheets riddled with assault, armed robbery and drug dealing charges.

With support from the Provost’s Office, the Department of English, and Multicultural Programs & Services. Free and open to the public.
