This Free Fun Sunday, visitors to the Allentown Art Museum and the Art, Power, and Migration discussion will be invited to participate in the For Freedoms 50 State Initiative. Visitors will have the option of writing what they feel passionate about on available yard signs that they can either take with them to display or leave at the museum for others to view.

"For Freedoms wants to make creativity an American value. We want citizenship to be defined by the creative use of one’s voice, one’s body, one’s mind, and ultimately one’s vote. We want people to shape the cultural systems that shape their lives — politics, art, advertising, civic life — by participating in them, rethinking them, and hacking them"

Angel Suarez-Rosado: Talisman - Allentown Art Museum

Puerto Rican-born, Easton-based artist Angel Suarez-Rosado will create a site-specific installation at the Allentown Art Museum. Suarez-Rosado transforms ordinary objects, imbuing them with power, in a practice related to Espiritismo (Spiritism) and Santería, which combine elements of Yoruba religion with Catholicism. Conceived of as an offering to the community and comprised of paintings, sculptures, found and natural objects, Talisman mixes ritual and artistic traditions. As stated by fellow artist Raquelín Mendieta, “Spirituality and art are one and the same. Works of art are prayers on the altar of life.”

Check out this wonderful event created and run by the incredible Society of the Arts - Lehigh Valley.

Allentown’s own Deborah Heiligman penned our nonfiction selection, Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers for this year’s Luncheon with the Authors. Deborah grew up in Allentown and attended William Allen High School before going on to study at Brown University. She currently lives in New York City where she is an award winning author of books for children and teens. She is the recipient of awards such as the Michael L Pritz Award, YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults and was also a National Book Award finalist. Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers, while intended for an older teen audience, was read with delight by our art savvy readers. She created this thoughtful and intimate account of the relationship between artist Vincent Van Gogh and his art dealer brother Theo through her extensive research of the brothers’ correspondence. It is the thoroughly enjoyable yet bittersweet story of the devotion between the brothers. It is a must read for all, especially those attending Luncheon with the Authors on October 4, where you will have the opportunity to meet Deborah and learn about her writing experiences.

There are just a few tickets left so if you intend to purchase one go to www.sotapa.org to purchase tickets and for full details about the event. Don’t wait another day!

Join us on Sept. 30 at 1 p.m. as part of Free Fun Sunday for a screening of the film "Dolores".

In conjunction with Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15, this documentary examines Dolores Huerta, among the most important yet least known activists in American history. An equal partner in cofounding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century—and she continues the fight to this day. The Museum’s documentary film series is part of the HeARThstone Project, which is supported by the generosity of the Harry C. Trexler Trust.
