Mia docent Joanne Platt returns to BOND’s Adventures In Learning offerings with another original presentation created just for us!! In her own words, she explains what her tour is all about: “The reality of being a refugee is inconceivable to most of us. We have never had to leave our homes and experience hardship and uncertainty as we traveled in search of a new and safe place to live. Although the reasons for transition may vary – either political, cultural, economic, or religious – and the movement itself may be either voluntary or involuntary, refugees and immigrants share a common desire to express those experiences through art. The power of art by people in transition is the power of storytelling, of connecting with others, and of fostering empathy. On our tour today, we will explore several artworks in Mia’s collection whose themes revolve around displacement, refugees, and loss of home, and adapting to life in a new and strange land, and (with the help of our wonderful docent and friend), we will discover the messages the artists wished to convey through their artworks.” –Joanne Platt
