We were honored to host another installment of our "Community Conversation series" focusing on how art informs activism and change. During this panel, four experts discussed the different ways art can inspire change and influence movements.
Sara Martinez, Site Manager, Tulsa City-County Library
- I am Joaquin
- The Hate You Give
- I am not your Perfect Mexican Daughter
- A collection of graphic novels from Chicago Public Library. Accessible through TCCL.
- Sara encourages everyone to support local journalism. She reads the Tulsa World letter to the editors every morning (it never mails to get her pulse rate up), and recommends the Tulsa Star and Semana del Sur for more diverse perspectives.
- For visual arts that have moved her: “On a senior trip in 1977, we visited the Hospicio Cabañas in Guadalajara and I will never forget the impact of José Clemente Orozco’s murals there; around this time I saw Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party that blew me away.”
- Additionally she shares, “Musically and in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, SO GLAD the Woody Guthrie Center recognized the great Joan Baez this year; she will always be an inspiration to me. I remember seeing her in concert in Tulsa some years ago – just WOW.”
