Panel Talk: Art and Activism

Event at Crocker Art Museum

Time Price
Thurs, 6:30pm - 8pm
$6 - $10

The lives and work of Corita Kent and Faith Ringgold, featured in exhibitions at the Crocker through May 13, offer stirring examples of artistic practices extended into activism. In this provocative panel talk, we take inspiration from these women to hear from and about artists connecting art and social justice. Speakers will include Michael Duncan, a scholar and curator of Corita Kent’s work, and LizzettaLeFalle-Collins, a scholar of Black artists who has studied the work of Faith Ringgold for many years.Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share their own ideas about the role art can play to increase awareness of injustice and act as a bridge toward understanding divergent viewpoints.
