Upcoming Program at the Crocker Art Museum on Art and Activism, November 19, 6pm
Former UCD AHI MA graduate Erin Dorn has organized an exciting series of programs at the Crocker Art museum called Art Beyond Fear.
The next event in this series is on Art and Activism.
In the year since the protests in Ferguson, Mo., began, a renewed movement in the fight for civil rights has been launched. Throughout these protests, what role have artists played, and how has the intersection of art and activism manifested? Discover how activist artists have responded to events of the day, as well as their own experiences as part of Black Lives Matter and other movements striving for civil rights. Panelists include Milton Bowens, Chucha Marquez, YaYa Porres, and Sarah Wellington of New York-based collective We Will Not Be Silent, and the panel will be moderated by Ranon Maddox of the Greater Sacramento Urban League.
