Artist Audey Lee is also the Development Specialist for LatinxFest, Athens’ Latino arts and culture festival. Lee’s triptych honors the founding organizers of LatinxFest: Esther, Rosalba, and Beto. Through their leadership, LatinxFest has successfully engaged the community for over ten years by celebrating, uplifting, and broadcasting the immigrant experience in Athens. The poses of the portrait subjects symbolize the significance of this engagement: Esther, Rosalba, and Uncle Beto want YOU! to join in the action.
The 10th annual LatinxFest will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019 on Washington Street between Pulaski St. and Lumpkin (behind Creature Comforts). Find out more online.
The CCBC Gallery showcases local art throughout the year, curated by the lead staff member for Creature Comforts’ Get Artistic program. Through grant fundraising, events, and more, Get Artistic strives to remove obstacles for artists of all backgrounds pursuing a sustainable career in the arts.
