Elisa H. Hamilton is a multimedia artist whose practice focuses on the creation of inclusive artworks that emphasize the inherent joy of our everyday places, objects, and experiences. Her work has been shown locally and nationally in solo and group exhibitions. For HUBweek 2017, Hamilton presents “Slideshow,” a series of curated talks that highlight the everyday lives of ten Boston area women. “Slideshow” is supported and co-presented by Now + There, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating impactful public art projects in Greater Boston.

On the importance of art: Hamilton believes that “Art gives us an entry point to confront challenging issues in a way that is both individual and communal. When we experience a work of art, we bring our personal stories with us, so each of us can experience the same piece of art in a completely different way. For me, it’s art’s ability to bring us together through that personal exploration that makes it so special.”

Check out more of Hamilton’s work here and more on Now + There here. To see her work at HUBweek 2017, you can register for The HUB for free.
