What is the artist's role in the community?
This panel discussion and community conversation will explore the different roles artists play in their respective communities. We will look at the parallels between the avenues for social commentary by artists today and those used by artists to document the world during the Great Migration in the United States. Participants include current McColl Center artists-in-residence Brittney Leeanne Williams and Sherrill Roland; muralist and figurative sculptor Dare Coulter; and mixed-media artist J. Stacy Utley. The conversation is moderated by Black On Black Project founder and curator Mike Williams. Learn more about the event here.
The Stimulus series of conversations offers you deeper insight into the work and ideas of contemporary artists. These sessions aim to make connections between McColl Center artists-in-residence and alumni artists and our constantly evolving local arts community.
