Saturday, September 9th, 2017

5pm-9pm

Lancaster Museum of Art and History – MOAH

665 W Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster, CA 93534

Join the Lancaster Museum of Art and History and multidisciplinary artist Diane Williams at Celebrate America on The BLVD for the next installment of her site specific project, My America.

My America is William's recent body of work about finding common ground with the community at large. She will be engaging visitors to celebrate America on the intersection of Lancaster Blvd and Cedar Avenue.

Diane Williams is a multidisciplinary artist whose work stems from the political and social landscape that surrounds her. She uses art as a call to arms, creating works that explore issues about immigrants and gender to encourage cultural and social understanding.

Williams will be engaging the public with the 2nd installment of her participatory piece,  “My America”. She will ask viewers to write the first name of an immigrant they know and their relationship to that person on a piece of paper and then post it on a wall. Collectively illustrating the idea of an extended community.
