Then join us on April 4th at the Lansdale Library, at 301 Vine Street, Lansdale for a presentation on Art for Social Change by Theresa Brown Gold. Theresa BrownGold is the painter, writer, performance artist, and songwriter also known as Pussi Artist. She uses several art forms to start dialog around social issues such as healthcare, war, dying, immigration, and more. Her project is called Art As Social Inquiry. She paints large, expressionistic faces as a way to tell personal stories and connect the viewers to those stories…to real people Theresa has been using art to look at healthcare in the US since 2008. “I’ll be painting healthcare in this country until health policy is settled or I die, whichever comes first,” She says. Theresa sometimes uses her art to demonstrate in public spaces as a way of bringing awareness to an issue. She stood with her healthcare portraits in front of the US Supreme Court and Capitol buildings for 5 months in 2012. Theresa speaks about her work at conferences, churches, community centers, schools and civic groups. Her work has been featured in many interviews, publications and television programs .You can learn more about Theresa on her website, Art As Social Inquiry.
