Art in Conversation: Black Resistance in Contemporary Art

2/19/2023 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM PT

Join us for a special artists' talk centered around the relationship between Black art and Black resistance. A panel of local contemporary artists will discuss their work, what it is to be a Black artist today, and what their forms of resistance are as Black artists. The discussion will feature the status of contemporary Black art and how the practice of art as a tool of resistance has evolved in America since the African Diaspora. Panel members include Unity Lewis, Michael Granville, and TheArthur Wright, joined by panel moderator and Sonoma County metal artist Denise Ward

This program is presented in partnership with Petaluma Blacks for Community Development. Learn more about their Black History Month event schedule at
