STOP. LOOK. LISTEN. Art and Social Justice
The University of Arizona School of Art Visiting Artists and Scholars Series, 2019-2020
STOP. LOOK. LISTEN. Art and Social Justice is a two-year series which gives voice to displaced, marginalized, and excluded groups and demonstrate the particular power of visual art to create civil engagements and meaningful connections. A total of eight internationally recognized artists and scholars will present public lectures and conduct workshops and seminars addressing race, ethnicity, citizenship, faith, environment, economic status, sexual orientation, and gender identity. One artist each year will work with a local justice organization throughout the academic year on a socially engaged public art project.
The School of Art Visiting Artists and Scholars Series is made possible by the School of Art Advisory Board Visiting Artists and Scholars Endowment, the National Endowment for the Arts, the School of Art, the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Fund for Excellence, and the Center for Creative Photography. Additional funding for Cassils’ lecture is provided by University of Arizona Institute for LGBT Studies.
