Join internationally recognized Brazilian street artist, Eder Muniz, for an artist talk and live painting session that examines the connection between humans and nature. Through his art, which depicts colorful imagery of plants, animals and humans, Muniz aims to raise awareness of indigenous cultures and inspire public discourse on how nature can unite people from all walks of life.

After his talk, Muniz will move to the Meier Commons green space outside the Union to complete a new painting that will be gifted to the university for display in the Education Abroad Office in Love Library South. The artwork will eventually be moved to the university’s Global Education Center, a key initiative outlined in the Forward Together global strategy that will create a one-stop hub for students to engage in global experiential learning.

This event is free and open to the general public. Masks are required for entrance to the Nebraska Union and social distancing measures should be followed outside.
