Do not miss this last opportunity to meet one of the featured artists, and guest curator of SOMOS/WE ARE: Latinx Artists of Long Island: Kelynn Z. Alder! She will be speaking with Museum guests on Saturday, December 16 from 2 pm to 4 pm in the LIM Art Museum. Learn more about her creative process and the influence her family and their Mexican roots have on her art.

Alder, the daughter of immigrants, is Mexican-American and has used her platform to help uplift other Latinx artists and the community on Long Island. She is a founding member of Latino Arts of Long Island. Her painting, Immigrants, currently on view in SOMOS, highlights the difficult journey many have encountered and continue to face as they migrate to America.
