America is at a crossroads. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, and countless others have sparked a national movement, shed light on deep-rooted social injustice, and precipitated long overdue conversations on systemic racism.
The Rappaport Foundation and deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum have partnered to assemble a panel of world-renowned artists and educators to discuss the role art and cultural institutions play in creating a culture of racial equity.
Following opening remarks by Phyllis Rappaport, Chair of the Rappaport Foundation, Sarah Montross, Senior Curator at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, will moderate a conversation among the following panelists:
- Sonya Clark: 2020 Rappaport Art Prize winner, Professor, Amherst College
- María Magdalena Campos-Pons: 2007 Rappaport Art Prize winner, Professor of Fine Arts & Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair of Fine Arts, Vanderbilt University
- Sam Durant: 2017 Rappaport Art Prize winner, Faculty, CalArts, School of Arts
- Daniela Rivera: 2019 Rappaport Art Prize winner, Barbara Morris Caspersen Associate Professor of Humanities; Associate Professor of Art, Wellesley College
Register to attend Speaking Our Minds: Artists, Racial Divides, and Cultural Inclusion, taking place online at 12:30pm (EST) on December 10, 2020.
