LECTURE: Beau-frog: Art and Franco American Activism (1970-1980)

Posted on: October 1st, 2018 by Charlie Gauvin No Comments

Susan Pinette, Director of Franco American Programs at the University of Maine, will give a free talk about the artwork on display and Peter Archambault's life in the Museum L-A gallery space.  The history of Franco-American communities in the seventies and eighties has not yet been written.  This talk aims to begin to fill this void by exploring drawings made by a Franco-American artist engaged in struggles to support and defend the rights of Franco-Americans.

“American Dreams” is an original play by Linda Britt with monologues that focus on the immigrant experience in the U.S., an experience which varies widely depending on country of origin, race, religion, age, and location. The monologues allow the actors to tell the story of each immigrant character, and focus on the aspect of their immigration story that is most meaningful to them. There are 26 monologues total; the producing company may do as few as ten or as many more as they choose.
