Photography + Film Alum Raises Money for Hurricane Victims

Steven Casanova (BFA ’15) is teaming up with The Anderson to host “Richmond Potluck” on Friday, Oct. 6, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Casanova is one of six recent alumni featured in the “Reach Out and Touch” exhibition, on view at the Anderson through Oct. 8.

Casanova had always planned a community potluck — “the physical embodiment of this sharing, with people eating and sharing across the city,” he said — as part of the exhibition. But in the wake of Hurricane Maria, he realized community is formed by more than just physical proximity. He has friends and family on the island that he still is unable to contact.

“There are many people who want to help but don’t know how or don’t feel like they are able to,” he said. “If you don’t have money, bring art. If you don’t make art, bring food. It will all encourage donations and end up benefiting people who really need it.”
