The Augur: A Global Portrait of Hope

Artist María Berrío joins Mitra Abbaspour, Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Holly Hatheway, Head Librarian of Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, to celebrate the installation of The Augur, the eight-foot-tall multi-technique work that Berrío created specifically for the Firestone Library. Berrío will discuss her influences, her process, and the inspiration she drew from cultural heritage, literary traditions, and the site itself in developing this contemplative scene of a gathering of youth beneath a sky filled with birds in flight.

This event will include live closed captions in both English and Spanish.
