Art for Advocacy: Live Discussion with Photographer Chris Jordan, 12/13

What is it about visual art that changes the viewer? What are the pitfalls and opportunities inherent to art that advocates? Whether you’re a fan of inspiring images or you want to create art for advocacy yourself, please plan to join a dialogue on the topic hosted by Orion on December 13th, at 7 p.m. Eastern, 4 p.m. Pacific.

Our guests will be Chris Jordan, a photographer we’ve been proud to showcase in recent years (his series “Intolerable Beauty” was featured in the March/April 2007 issue of Orion), and Orion‘s Picture Editor Jason Houston, both of whom will discuss their inspirations, narrate a slide show of their work, and answer audience questions. This event is free and open to all, but registration is required—please register here.
