Opening reception for the library's winter art exhibit, Symphony of Colors.
Author Kelly Walters will read excerpts from her book Black, Brown + Latinx Design Educators: Conversations on Design and Race during the reception. In her book, she explores questions about the experiences of Black, Brown and Latinx graphic design educators in college classrooms today as well as how racial identity influences design professionals of color.
The juried show, curated by Isabella Montenegro, focuses on harmony, features works by local and regional artists of color.
The exhibit will be on display through March 21.
In 12 deeply personal interviews that make up Black, Brown + Latinx Design Educators: Conversations on Design and Race, Walters unpacks the following questions with design educators of color: What are the experiences of Black, Brown, and Latinx graphic design educators in college classrooms today? How does racial identity influence their work and practice? What does it mean to be a person of color in the field of graphic design?
Co-sponsored by the Stamford Art Association.
