In this live online event hosted by Chief Curator Sequoia Miller, Shinnecock artist Courtney M. Leonard will discuss three of her artworks in connection to the theme “Water”.  Leonard’s current work embodies the multiple definitions of “breach,” an exploration and documentation of historical ties to water, whale, and material sustainability.
