Art + Issues: 21st Century Pioneers, Millennials and New Frontiers will be held at the Hunter Museum Thursday from 6-7 p.m. 

For this Art + Issues, Tiffanie Robinson, director of Operations at Lamp Post Group and founder of WayPaver, will take participants on a voyage of discovery through a 19th century painting as they explore passages old and new that made the nation strong. Using an image that reflects generational change amidst changing technologies in the 19th century, participants will look at the parallels today and ways that this transition can help rebuild the old with the new -  revitalizing smaller and midsized communities through diversification of talent and incorporation of the next generation of leaders.   

Like all Art + Issues, this program is free to all in the community and is a partner program with the AIGA.
