Let's Talk: Art and Activism

Join the Center for Civic Engagement and the Hofstra University Museum of Art for a discussion about the current exhibition "Pushing Boundaries: American Art After World War II." Attendees will talk about the activism behind some of the works that cover topics such as the Civil Rights Movement, the Holocaust, and World War II. The art captures how artists living in America used their medium to immortalize and promote social movements. Artists featured include Yonia Fain, Lee Krasner, and Andy Warhol. All of the works are part of Hofstra's permanent collection, and many of the artists also have personal ties to the university. 

 Open to the Hofstra community only.

Date: April 17

Time: 11:20 to 12:00 p.m.  and 12:20 to 1:00 p.m. (two sessions).

Location: Emily Lowe Gallery

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
