In-Studio Presentation and Panel with Chelsea Hernandez
December 14, 2019, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Join us for a panel, and final exhibition concluding the Big Medium artist residency of Chelsea Hernandez. During her time working and living at the LINE Austin, Chelsea made an art installation while working on her new film centered around student loan debt stories. “It’s important for us to share our stories to break the stigma of school debt. We shouldn’t feel embarrassed by it, we reached for the stars to get a higher education. Many are firsts in their families to have a college degree or have a salaried position. Let’s break the stigma of #studentloans”
Free entry and valet with RSVP.
