Dalia Reyes is an interdisciplinary artist, independent arts administrator and arts instructor from Southwest Detroit, and she'll be exhibiting her works here at the Ferndale Library in June! Dalia has been working in the arts sector for more than fifteen years, but she's been passionate about drawing and illustration since elementary school. We talk to Reyes about the positive ways in which a work of art can serve its audience, primarily by restoring and refreshing our auras. We also talk about the value of the social interactions that come with visiting galleries, (and she has lots of experience working in the gallery world). While we're at it, we should also talk about the importance of putting value ON a piece of art! http://daliareyes.com/
Reyes has worked in arts and culture-based non-profit organizations ranging from local galleries, arts fellowship organizations, and museums. Her work is cosmic, meditative and focuses on a metaphysical curiosity as well as surreal imagery.
In this episode, you'll hear us discussing two books that Reyes brought with her:
Mati & the Music
and Tiger Flower
