Black Lives Matter: An Intergenerational Discussion
September 29, 3:30–4:30 pm

Select awardees of the Black Lives Matter Artist Grant Program will discuss historical contexts and recent events in our shared search for racial equity. Moderated by Lisa Guerrero, Associate Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence, WSU.


 

The Black Lives Matter Artist Grant Exhibition will celebrate and showcase twenty Washington artists who are using their voices, experiences, and artistic expression toward social justice efforts in response to systemic racism.

The WSU Schnitzer Museum’s 20 recipients are: Aisha Harrison, Lisa Myers Bulmash, Hasaan Kirkland, Rene Westbrook , Troy Riley Miles, Jasmine Iona Brown, Robert J Lloyd, Grace June, Zinda K Foster, Whitney Evans, Jennifer Kuhns, Cynthia Camlin, Myron Curry, Jackie Schaubel, Derek E Johnson, Maya Milton , Bonnie Hopper, Tracy Poindexter-Canton, Damon Brown, and Felicia Follum.

“I have often said artists are chroniclers of our time. We all feel anguish about the death of George Floyd and many others at the hands of racial oppression,” said Jordan Schnitzer, president of The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. “We, more than ever, need artists to help us understand this issue and help us heal.”
