Stanton Thomas, Ph.D. will give a 20-minute tour of Coming to America, an exhibition focusing upon four immigrant artists. Participants will then move to the cafe for a conversation with Bryce Ashby, an attorney who specializes in immigrant law.

Café Conversations is a pilot project that explores art and social justice issues through candid discussions inside Café Brooks by Paradox.

The conversations will occur the third Wednesday of every month and will coincide with a tour of a related special exhibition or works from the permanent collection. Led by local Memphians, the series will encourage visitors to contemplate real life issues by drawing comparisons to themes in art.
