Event Description:
Arts and Human Rights Panel Discussion

Art is a powerful tool for expressing the quest for human dignity and for advancing civic empowerment. By portraying stories of past and ongoing struggles for social change through a variety of media (painting, prints, film and theater), artists have a unique ability to generate empathy and embrace our common humanity. This panel, held in conjunction with the exhibitions Expressing the Social Conscience: Art Prints and Human Rights, and Rise to Freedom: Jacob Lawrence’s Toussaint L’Ouverture will provide an opportunity for artists and human rights advocates to critically explore the unique perspectives that art brings to the pursuit of social justice and the effects of such pursuit on the nature and reach of artistic work.
