Join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center and Seattle Art Museum for an inspiring evening featuring artists who are communicating powerful messages about gender equity, social justice and disease prevention. Foundation staff will highlight artists from the “The Art of Saving a Life” project that aimed to tell stories of the power of vaccines through a variety of art mediums. Wura-Natasha Ogunji, a performance and visual artist featured in the Seattle Art Museum’s summer exhibition Disguise: Masks & Global African Art, will speak about her artwork and practice.
