Panel Discussion - Emotion and Creativity

Emotion is the essential characteristic that makes us human.   Throughout our lives, we experience joy, sorrow, grief, love and a whole range of momentous, devastating, mundane feelings that form us and become the markers of our life’s path. The artists included in Voices: I Remember were inspired by their emotions generated from pivotal memories in their lives to create the artworks in this exhibition. Join us for an afternoon in which these artists explore the connection between memory, emotion, and creativity.
