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.
