Artist Talk: 'A Decade of Visual Activism' by Jess T. Dugan
Tuesday March 28 @ Arapahoe Community College (Waring Theater), Free

Ms. Dugan has delved deeply into that messy chaos to present experiences and individuals that don’t fulfill clear-cut expectations." -- Jake Naughton, New York Times Lens blog
