SIX WEDNESDAYS

JANUARY 12-FEBRUARY 16

We will examine the role visual art has played in the political and cultural movements that helped define the nation over the last 100 years and advocate for change. From artists of the 20s shining a light on Jim Crow practices; the struggles for Civil Rights in the 50s and 60s; the Anti-War, American Indian, Chicano, and Feminist Movements of the 70s; the Guerilla Girls challenging exclusion in the art system and ACT UP’s grassroots campaigns in the face of the AIDS Crisis in the 80s and 90s; and present day issues including climate change and social justice.
