Artists’ advocate Deana Haggag will talk with local artists and funders about creative workers’ vital contributions to both the nation’s cultural and civic life.

Deana Haggag, CEO and President of the Chicago-based, philanthropic nonprofit U.S.A, is an advocate for artists and passionate about creative workers’ ability to illuminate the shifting landscape of American identity, while making space for experiences and viewpoints that run counter to the mainstream. For this event, Haggag will converse with local artists and arts funders about this thing we refer to as American art.

These activities are related to the M’s ongoing exhibition, We the People, on view through October 29, 2017.
