Meet local artist Remelisa Cullitan and see their artwork.

This program, part of the Library's celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, introduces you to local Filipinx-American Queer Artist Remelisa Cullitan. Learn more about Remelisa's art and the concepts, ideas, and other artists that inspire their work.

Most publicly, you can see Remelisa's art in the E of "MATTER" in the BLACK LIVES MATTER mural on the east side of the Seven2 and 14Four building in downtown Spokane. They've said about their work, "My art is my voice. I've frequently experienced folks who will actively work towards silencing, talking over, or not including me in the conversation. I feel like that has only strengthened my artistic voice, so thank you. Art is a powerful form of visual communication and I am an advocate for everyone to find their creative voice."

Register to participate and you will receive an email with a link with instructions on how to participate.

The discussion is held on Zoom. Technology requirements: you will need a device or computer with an internet connection and speakers. If you want to ask a question your device will need a microphone or you can use the chat feature to ask questions.
