Creative Industries Discussion: Justin Favela (VIDEO)
On June 4, 2020 the Schneider Museum of Art at Southern Oregon University hosted a Virtual Creative Industries Discussion with Fall 2019 VAST Resident Justin Favela. We revisited his SMA exhibition ‘Together/Juntos’, his experience leading our FREE Family Days, his installation ‘¡Provecho!’ that was created at SOU for The Prudential Center in Boston, and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on artists.
