Art at the Intersection of the Environment and Social Justice
Wednesday, April 12 | 4:15 p.m.
Founders Room, Claremont Colleges Library

Panelists:
Claudia Arteaga (Scripps College, Assistant Professor of Spanish)
Tia Blassingame (Scripps College, Visiting Assistant Professor of Book Arts and Director of Scripps College Press)
George Gorse (Pomona College, Viola Horton Professor of Art History)
Kasper Kovitz (Scripps College, Assistant Professor of Art)
Nancy Macko (Scripps College, Professor of Art)

Moderated by Bill Anthes (Pitzer College, Professor in Art Field Group)

Although there is certainly no imperative for art to do so, it often attends to its political, cultural, or social milieu. Further, we frequently look to artistic works to help us consider old questions or raise new ones about our own lives, the realities of people and things around us, and the relationships between and among us all. In the final Spring 2017 installment of Claremont Discourse, a panel of faculty from across the Colleges will discuss the role of art engaged with subjects at the intersection of the natural world and social justice and how art can document, bring attention to, and expose the complexity of these issues.
