8/11: Persona Art Benefit for TIRRC at Tournament

You’ve heard about it, you’ve read about it, and it’s still happening: in 2018, in America, families are being torn apart and children are in cages. It’s time to stand together with our neighbors, wherever they come from. Andrés Bustamante has initiated the conversation by bringing together artists from all different backgrounds for an upcoming exhibit called Persona.

Bustamante uses the word Persona (person in Spanish)  to reminds us that humanity is shared by all people, no matter what language they speak. That’s why the exhibit will benefit Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC), which is working with families affected by our country’s zero-tolerance policy and Tennessee’s anti-immigrant law HB 2315.

The exhibit takes place Saturday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and is sponsored by East Nashville Beer Works. Find more information on the event and how you can support the cause here.
