A Look at Black Art and Civil Rights
January 18, 1-3 PM
$18 for members, $20 for nonmembers

The American Civil Rights movement was built of powerful words, powerful acts, and powerful images. Artists embedded in the movements of yesterday and today have borne witness to oppression, armed the imagination with images of power, beauty, dignity, and outrage, and investigated the profound and complex reverberations of these movements within our inner selves. Join University of Montana Western professor of art history Aja Mujinga Sherrard for a lecture and conversation about art and protest, featuring the MAM's own collection works by Kara Walker, Lorna Simpson, and Jacob Lawrence, as we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther Kind Jr. and our ongoing struggle for a world without oppression. Scholarships available.
