The next virtual Hesselbein Lecture at GSPIA will feature artist Shaun Leonardo, co-director of Recess Art, a nonprofit art space formed in 2009 in Brooklyn to support artists who boldly reimagine an inclusive public for art.

In this virtual event, artist Leonardo will share insight into repairing the harms of systemic racism through initiatives like Assembly, a nonprofit program he founded to fight mass incarceration through arts education.

Event is free and open to the public.
