WHAT: Barrier Free Art, Opera Memphis, The Art Museum of the University of Memphis, and Latino Memphis join talents to present, “La Posada.” A beautiful and thought provoking art collaboration in response to the humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border with the established immigration detention centers, the recent caravan of asylum seekers, and the connection to the biblical story of the Holy family seeking refuge as we enter the holiday season. The community is invited to be part of an art installation with a performance of classical opera that promote the idea of a more inclusive and welcoming country.
