Welcome the Stranger Opening Reception

March 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Cast glass sculpture of Harriet Tubman

Join us on International Women’s Day to kick off the opening of Welcome The Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato.

Micaela interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like “superheroes” to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.

Welcome The Stranger will be on display in our GlassAccess gallery from March 9-June 9, 2019.

Join us at the opening reception to get a first-look at the show, meet Micaela and other artists, and enjoy live entertainment and refreshments. Music will be hosted by DJ Neeek Nyce, Owner, Into Fields Live Entertainment, Philly’s number one female-owned Mobile Entertainment Company in the Tri-State area. Live “Spoken Word” performances will be presented by Julia Lopez and duo Cara Judea Alhadeff and Rob Mies. The event is free, with a suggested donation of $12 to support NLM’s public programming.
