One event on September 24 at 10:00 am
Presented by the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies. Compelling conversations with illustrators, art directors, authors, and scholars will explore more than 300 years of racial representation in published art and the role of mass-circulated imagery as a force in shaping public perception about people and groups of people. Presented in conjunction with Imprinted: Illustrating Race, the Museum’s current exhibition, this symposium will spark dialogue about the ways that art, advertising, and systems of publishing have helped to frame public opinion, and how the art of illustration has become a force for change today. Interactive with Q&A.
