In partnership with the Mandell JCC Greater Hartford

Join an interactive discussion about the French photographer, JR, one of today's most effective public artists.  He has an ongoing exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, for which he created an outdoor mural picturing 1200 New Yorkers from all five boroughs six months before the pandemic hit. Always focusing on social justice, JR is thoughtful, uplifting, and a welcome panacea. He has built his career around connecting with strangers, something we can all learn from at this moment.
