• Metamorphosis: Artist and Youth Voices on Immigration, Saturdays and Sundays, June 10 - June 18, 2017
In this multi media exhibit, Bay Area artists and high school students explored the immigrant experience here in the United States. The exhibit intended to spark discussions about this important topic and offer new viewpoints on human rights by highlighting the personal stories of these artists. Included in the exhibit was artwork by non-immigrant artists who seek to champion the value and diversity of the Bay Area's immigrant populations at a time when they are increasingly under siege. The exhibit was curated by CASP artist and educator, Barbara Boissevain whose own art practice seeks to cultivate awareness and provoke meaningful discourse about social and environmental issues.
• Opening Reception for Metamorphosis and Interactive Talk of Migratory Cultures
Saturday, June 10, 7 - 10 pm
Migratory Cultures was a site-specific video projection mapping and documentary video project.

Imagery included portraits of individuals and students who Lasser collaborated with to capture stories for this project.
