Description: <p>Join Vanguard Culture for featured artist Julia San Rom&aacute;n, who joins curator and arts advocate Susanna Peredo Swap for a discussion about her new series &ldquo;The Hours,&rdquo; which pays homage to immigrant workers who she believes are the silent base of the American economy. The first 25 people to register will receive a limited edition face mask.</p>

<p>&ldquo;The Hours is my homage to all our valuable foreign workers, who I believe are the silent base of the American economy. They are the seeds, the fasteners, the wheels, the gears of our society; and by taking care of the basics, they nurture it. Some of these courageous and reliable workers accumulate sick hours for a lifetime but, frequently, either they are insecure about taking &ldquo;sick leave,&rdquo; or they are not allowed to take it by their supervisors, thus they continue working even when they are ill. This is my Now, as I work part time as a medical interpreter in the Workers&rsquo; Compensation System. It is a reality I was aware of, but now I come face to face with this unfair situation on a daily basis.&rdquo; &ndash; Julia San Rom&aacute;n</p>
