Art Amidst Conflict: Belfast, Beirut, and Baltimore (Panel Discussion featuring Rita Duffy, Helen Zughaib and Joyce J. Scott)


“Art Amidst Conflict: Belfast, Beirut, and Baltimore,” the second annual Perspectives on Peace Discussion, will feature artists  Rita Duffy, Helen Zughaib, and Joyce J. Scott (2016 MacArthur Fellow/”Genius Grant” winner) in DeMeester Recital Hall on Thursday, November 10 at 5:30pm. YCP professor and conflict transformation professional Shelly Clay-Robison will moderate the discussion, which will delve into how growing up in their home cities of Beirut, Belfast, and Baltimore during periods of conflict influenced the artists’ work and their interest in seeking justice and promoting peace. A reception will follow the discussion and attendees are encouraged to visit Helen Zughaib’s gorgeous exhibition, “Arab Spring (Unfinished Journeys,)” in the York College Galleries.
