All Talk AND Action: Black Power in Art


Sunday, July 14, 2019
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


This panel discussion will explore themes exemplified by the significant works of African American artists David Clyde Driskell, Barkley L. Hendricks, and Kerry James Marshall, currently on view in Art and Identity: Highlights from the Collections of the HRM and Art Bridges. Panelists include: Dr. Mary E. Dillard, Professor of African History and Global Studies and Director of Graduate Studies in Women’s History at Sarah Lawrence College; award-winning visual artist and designer Ron Norsworthy, whose interdisciplinary practice is a fusion of fine art, video and multiple design disciplines; and New York Times photographer Dana Scruggs, who founded SCRUGGS Magazine, a print publication dedicated to her vision of the male form, and who just became the first Black photographer to shoot the cover of Rolling Stone. Moderated by Cathleen Harvey Wiggins, Director of the Museum Education Program at Bank Street College of Education and long-time lead consultant for the non-profit organization Cool Culture. It will be followed by a meet and greet with the panelists and a tour of the exhibition by HRM Junior Docents.
