Explore the visual language of reportage, or documentary drawing, with Teaching Artist-in-Residence Eric Velasquez. Through the simple process of drawing with charcoal on newsprint, make a strong and meaningful statement inspired by “Can I Get a Witness: Photographs by Herb Snitzer.”

The exhibition features a selection of photographs by this award-winning photographer that celebrate individuals from every walk of life. Subjects range from street scenes of 1950s New York City to jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong and Nina Simone, to activists participating in the 2017 Women’s March. Snitzer’s broad artistic vision also includes images from Pride parades, at a time when the country is celebrating World Pride and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. #CanIGetAWitness #HerbSnitzer #HRM100
