Me­dia Fel­low­ship to host ‘Art speaks on Gay Rights’

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - ENTERTAINMENT - To sub­mit com­mu­nity news, email Colin Ainsworth at del­co­com­mu­nity@21stcen­tu­ry­media.com.

The Me­dia Fel­low­ship House will con­clude its six­part se­ries based on Ge­orge Rothacker’s So­cial Con­flicts in Amer­ica paint­ings Nov. 28.

The fi­nal work of art is Gay Rights. Although sex­ual re­la­tions be­tween same sex cou­ples have been known since an­cient times, the open dis­cus­sion and “tol­er­ance” of in­di­vid­u­als has changed dur­ing the 20th and 21st cen­turies. Laws pro­tect­ing rights have been passed, and is­sues of gen­der have ex­panded into vir­tu­ally all seg­ments of so­ci­ety. De­bate con­tin­ues.

Art Speaks is part of the MFH larger con­cept of Open Door-Open Talk, fo­rum which in­vites all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to give voice to con­cerns and opin­ions on a wide va­ri­ety of top­ics con­cern­ing cit­i­zens to­day. MFH be­lieves the sub­ject of Gay Rights, and all as­so­ci­ated is­sues, may be of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to younger peo­ple who are en­cour­aged to at­tend.

Artist Ge­orge Rothacker has gen­er­ously made the orig­i­nal paint­ings avail­able for view and to spark dis­cus­sion. He will serve as mod­er­a­tor, start­ing with brief com­ments on how and why he cre­ated the So­cial Con­flicts se­ries.

All MFH events are free and open to the pub­lic. The pro­gram will be­gin at 6:30 p.m. with light re­fresh­ments and time to chat, fol­lowed by the heart of the mat­ter from 7-8 p.m. or be­yond.

Me­dia Fel­low­ship House is lo­cated at 302 S. Jack­son St. (one block south of Bal­ti­more Av­enue.) For more in­for­ma­tion, and to make a reser­va­tion (not re­quired to at­tend), go to www.me­di­afel­low­ship­house.org and also see www.so­cial­con­flictsi­namer­ica.com.
