The Chrysalis Institute launches their fall theme, Creativity: The Soul Speaks, with a panel moderated by ICA Director Lisa Freiman, who has assembled a panel of creative arts professors discussing how their art enables them to “speak” in different languages. A group of musicians, visual artists, writers, and dancers will demonstrate how their art forms communicate by performing an act of “translation” for the audience. The panel’s goal is to enable participants to understand the unique ways in which art can be an expressive tool and how artists can interpret the same theme or concept in different ways.
When: 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015
Where: Richmond CenterStage’s Gottwald Theater
