authorStaff Writer on May 20, 2024

Join us at The Church on Tuesday, June 4, from 5 to 6 p.m. for an artist talk with Jordan Seaberry. Seaberry’s work is built on compressions of history between his current legislative work and the story of his family’s migration, fleeing a lynching in Mississippi. Most recently, Seaberry has completed a body of mixed-media paintings and sculptures developed in conversation and collaboration with terminally ill hospice patients. On view at the Newport Art Museum, “We Live Until” explores the topics of grief, life and death, and how they relate to a larger conversation about human rights and social justice. Seaberry is one of the Church’s June artists-in-residence.

Jordan Seaberry is a painter, organizer, legislative advocate and educator. Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, he attended Rhode Island School of Design, and later, Roger Williams University School of Law. Alongside his art, he built a career as a grassroots organizer and legislative advocate, helping to pass multiple criminal justice reform milestones, including probation reform, the Unshackling Pregnant Prisoners Bill and the statewide Community-Police Relationship Act. Seaberry serves as co-director of the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, and as a professor at Rhode Island School of Design. Seaberry maintains a studio in Providence.

Tickets are free with RSVP. For more information, visit The Church is at 48 Madison Street, Sag Harbor.
