325 “Poison Ivy” with Marielena Ferrer

It’s another installment of Spirituality and Politics with Marielena Ferrer. Today we largely speak about her upcoming exhibit, “At Arm’s Length,” where she dives deep into the meaning of Poison Ivy. It’s the second time a friend has built artwork around the plant that so many fear. It conjures an interesting response from most humans and perhaps sheds light on how we can or should respond to a threat, whether real or perceived.

Her show is a part of the MFA thesis exhibitions at the Samuel Dorsky Museum and the opening reception is this Friday, May 17th from [7:30]-9:30pm with additional hours May 17 – 20, 11am-5pm; and May 21, 11am-4pm.

She will be receiving the Artivist award from Arts Mid-Hudson this June 11th for her work advocating for the rights and recognition of immigrants via her Broken Monarchs exhibit.

Marielena is also the new Managing Director at Unison where she will be expanding upon her desire to foster diverse communities through the arts. Stay tuned for exciting things coming from Unison!

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from

Our show music is from Shana Falana!
