[Online] Signs of Hope: Arts and Activism
This online workshop will use the RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! public art exhibition at Duke's Nasher Museum of Art as a starting place to reflect on issues of faith and justice in Durham. The outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by nationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems emphasizes the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on the lives of communities of color, through large-scale banners and window clings, posters, street signs and more.
