Crisp-Ellert to hold panel on 'Visuality of Race'
The Department of Art & Design at Flagler College and Compassionate St. Augustine will hold a panel discussion on "The Visuality of Race: Racism, Civil Rights, and Visual Politics," April 17 at 6 p.m. in the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum.
This panel includes local and regional participants involved in art and activism. The panelists will discuss ways in which racism becomes visible or remains invisible in current events. How do visual mediums such as art, protest, and social media help make racism visible and can they push forward a civil rights agenda? How do our visual experiences feed into individual understandings of this important issue? And how do our differences in observation hinder or forward progress?
Panelists include Shawana Brooks, Arts and Culture Developer at Jacksonville Public Library, and local activists: photographer Daniel Carter and artist Wendy Tatter. The moderator is Flagler College professor Leslie Robison.
