On August 1st, AVA will be hosting the first edition of our Bridging Art & Culture series, "Meeting the Artists". This event, corresponding with the "YOU. ME. US." exhibition, will give the audience the chance to hear the perspectives of culturally driven artists sharing their experiences in the ever growing society of Chattanooga. This event will function as a moderated conversation between three of the exhibit's featured artists, Alex Paul Loza, Ashley Prak, and Claire Vassort, moderated by artist and AVA Curatorial Intern, Tim Goldsmith. This event is free and open to the public.
