Gathering Resources to “RESPOND: Puerto Rico.” SMU Art’s New Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Following the destruction to Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria, many organizations have volunteered to help rebuild the island. One of those organizations, Puerto-Rico based MAOF (Materials and Crafts), will visit SMU on November 15 for a lecture to promote the post-Hurricane Maria initiative “RESPOND: Puerto Rico.” Their visit was scheduled several months ago as part of the Meadows Division of Art’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series, but takes on new meaning and urgency in the wake of the hurricane.
