ARTIST TALK with Amy Elkins

for Zoom link, contact Kyra Schmidt at

Amy Elkins is a visual artist currently based in California. She works in photography, installation, and sculpture and has spent the past fifteen years researching, creating, and exhibiting work that explores the multifaceted nature of masculine identity as well as the psychological and sociological impacts of incarceration. Most recently, Elkins' work pivots to explore notions of self as well as her family's deeply rooted and complex history in Southern California as an 8th generation born on Tongva land in the greater Los Angeles area.

What Photography Is and its associated programs are sponsored in part by the City of Roanoke through the Roanoke Arts Commission.

KIDS MAKE ART is a once per month first Saturday program offering opportunities for the whole family to connect with an art museum and respond creatively! By turning a viewing experience into a time for hands-on participation, children of all ages can enhance their observation skills and use their total brain, all while having fun working on a project with their parents, guardians, and peers! Local artist and educator Polly Branch designs and leads educational activities to bring you and your family together. Each fun afternoon of activities begins at 1:00pm. KIDS MAKE ART is free and for the whole family. Registration not required. Children require parent/guardian supervision at all times, and we encourage everyone to take part in the activities – adults and children alike! KIDS MAKE ART is funded in part by the City of Roanoke through the Roanoke Arts Commission.
