Curator Conversations

Throughout the year during free, public presentations, Norton curators provide insight and context to exhibitions they have organized and art and artists they have studied and admire. 

Activism and Protest in Art of the United States

Friday, May 24 / 6 pm

In relation to the special exhibition Nina Chanel Abney, Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education, discusses how American artists have used their art to spur social consciousness and political action. From Paul Revere to Hank Willis Thomas, these artists often employed popular media to reach broader audiences with their messages.

This program was made possible in part by the generosity of Florence Kahane Goodman, with additional support provided by the Gayle and Paul Gross Education Endowment Fund.
