Interdisciplinary artist Leticia Bajuyo will give a virtual artist talk, Matter Matters, about her creative work and upcoming Brick City exhibition, Collected Memories and Rooted Objects. Leticia will center the conversation around the ways everyday matter, from planks of wood to CDs, can act as an unexpected canvas and inspire her approach to creating and teaching about the things that matter to her most. The Zoom webinar takes place on February 18 at 11:30 AM, and those interested in participating are encouraged to register in advance for the event.
Leticia is a Texas-based artist specializing in drawings, sculptures, and site-specific installations. She earned her BFA from the University of Notre Dame and an MFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Her work has been installed in several cities in and around Texas, the Midwest, and even as far as Baku, Azerbaijan. Leticia’s latest collaborative project with artist Kerry Phillips, Collected Memories and Rooted Objects, is on show in the Brick City Galleries and Carolla Arts Exhibition Center from February 28–April 11.
