About the speaker:

Marla Allison is a visual artist producing artwork inspired by traditions, cultural displacement and the human experience. Originally from Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico, she is committed to participating in artist residencies that facilitate collaborations with artists from around the world. In her words, “Through the collaboration of artists, free thinkers and open-minded creative people, we can strengthen each other and build greater bridges…no matter where you come from or how you start, if you set a journey to learn, you will inspire and understand the essence of a strong human race.”

Allison maintains a lifestyle committed to travel and participation in cultural exchanges that have yielded lectures, murals, illustrations, and art exhibitions.  Allison has produced art in Bristol, UK; Abu Dhabi, UAE; Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; Manama, Bahrain; Budapest, Hungary; and more locally in the USA in cities such as Salem, MA, Washington DC, New York, NY, Providence, RI, Tucson and Phoenix, AZ, and New Mexico.
