CALTA21 Team

Patricia Lannes and AnaMaria Llanos talk about CALTA21 and its partnership with the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey.

Patricia Lannes accepts the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey’s 2020 Art Changemaker Award in the name of everyone who has been part of her professional journey, especially the New Jersey community. She says, “Change can’t happen in isolation, and together we have shown the artificial nature of borders and identities, and the power of art to bridge those lines. The arts are essential to building these connections, especially in the hard times we face today.”
