WHAT: Join the conversation at Washburn University’s Mulvane Art Museum for a discussion with faculty, students, and special guests as we explore artists' subversive and evocative work showing in our current exhibition Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate.
Speaking Volumes is a traveling exhibition organized by the Montana Human Rights Network and curated by Katie Knight. It showcases the diverse work of 39 artists who have transformed thousands of anti-Semitic and racist books into an uplifting and dynamic exhibition. The exhibition is visually powerful, thought-provoking, sometimes humorous, always challenging, and deeply moving.
Panelists for the conversation include: Imam Omar Hazim, Islamic Center of Topeka; Rabbi Debbie Stiel, Temple Beth Sholom; Jim McCollough, Topeka Center for Peace and Justice; and Danielle Dempsey-Swopes, Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Washburn University. Insightful and meaningful dialogue will touch on issues of racism, prejudice, discrimination, identity, reconciliation, hope, and community healing.
WHEN: The conversation will be held in the upstairs galleries of the museum, and is scheduled for Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 5:30 pm.
