Art Encounters: Community or Chaos

Thursday, January 21st

Virtual: Click here

In 1967, a year before he was assassinated, Dr. Martin Luther King published his last book, Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? In the text, Dr. King reflects on the social and political changes brought about by the Civil Rights movement and ponders how these could shape the future of American society. Today, more than fifty years later, we continue to revisit the meaning of the choices presented, chaos or community. Amidst recent worldwide protests against racial discrimination and police brutality sparked by the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis this past May, the works on view in this exhibition take on renewed meaning and urgency.
