Bear witness to the immigration experience through Petition for Entry: Canciones Sobre Inmigración, a multi-genre reading featuring Latinx writers Leslie Sainz, Mariam Johanan Estrada, and Juan Gonzalez. 

All too often, inflammatory political rhetoric aims to dehumanize those who risk their lives to come to this country in search of safety, freedom, and opportunity. Petition for Entry: Canciones Sobre Inmigración seeks to combat such division through the belief that educated dialogue among diverse people can spark and sustain cultural understanding and empathy. After each author shares their creative work, the event will feature a townhall-like discussion, in which audience members are encouraged to share their own relationships to the topic of immigration.

ART² is an experimental event in which SAM invites artists other than those currently exhibiting to enter the Museum and present their own interpretations of works on display. The resulting events range from performance art and theater to original musical compositions and contemporary dance. To learn more, visit spartanburgartmuseum.org/art2
