Media Fellowship to host ‘Art speaks on Gay Rights’
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.
