Calendar: Local Views at PAMM: Helen Peña

Event Description

Join us for our in-gallery tour program, Local Views at PAMM, where select local artists will speak about a few works of art currently on view at the museum. This month, Helen Peña will lead the tour. 

Local Views at PAMM gives visitors a first-hand interaction with local artists by creating conversations centered around art and the creative process. This casual 30-minute conversation takes place on the last Thursday of each month. 

About Helen Peña
Helen Peña is a mixed media artist and community organizer from Miami, FL. Raised by a family of Black Dominican matriarchs, she is interested in peeling back the layers of colonization towards the Black female body. She uses photography, video ​and installation art as a means of unearthing ancient truths, uplifting the divine in the ordinary, and visioning Black queer-positive futures. She is building that future at queer feminist collective (F)empower, as its founder, and racial justice organization, Dream Defenders.
