Krannert Art Museum is examining racism reflected in art

If you want a little art history education in response to the issues of racism that continue to permeate our culture and conversations, head on over to Krannert Art Museum’s Facebook page. They are utilizing the space to “engage art and museum practices that address racism and oppression, including interrogating KAM’s own history in relation to these subjects.”

Various KAM curators are reflecting on specific pieces of art and that how work either examines, challenges, or supports the racist and oppressive practices throughout history.
