Event Description
Damia Smith speaks about her recent work, The Weight of an Object, a project funded by Rocket Grants, a partnership of the Charlotte Street Foundation and the Spencer Museum of Art. Smith's project aims to enhance public understanding of how consumer goods are produced by starting a dialogue in the community about where objects originate, the processes that occur to generate a product, and how they affect the people who make them and those who live in the areas that produce them.
