Mayapple & Sarah Lawrence Summer Workshop—The Art of Protest: Art and Scholarship as Political Resistance

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Atrium/Lobby

Open to the public

/ Saturday

10:00am-3:00pm

Artists and scholars have long been at the forefront of protest movements in the United States and around the world. Whether by direct action or through their work, they have been instrumental in calling out injustice, fighting for the rights of marginalized groups, and drawing attention to problems both local and global in scale. In these fraught political times, the necessity of art that responds to injustice is never more urgent. Sarah Lawrence College and the Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities will jointly provide a forum for artists and scholars to reflect on their own practice of activist art, and more broadly, on the potential(s) for art as political resistance in America in 2018.
