On to Washington! Lewis Rubenstein and Rico Lebrun’s “Hunger March” Mural
October 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The demonstrations and protests that have swept the country over the last few years are part of a long history of Americans taking to the streets to demand change. In this Art Talk, we will look at Lewis Rubenstein and Rico Lebrun’s Hunger March mural, which was inspired by one such event that reverberated for decades afterward.
This talk is part of a series investigating power dynamics in artworks across the collections. Considering intersections of art and power, our curatorial team will discuss how artists engage with social and political crises, use art to upset systems of power, and imagine more equitable futures.
Sarah Kianovsky, Curator of the Collection, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
