2015

Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties, on view at the Blanton Museum of Art February 15 – May 10, 2015,  offers a focused look at artwork from a decade defined by social protest and American race relations. Featuring approximately 75 paintings, sculptures, and photographs by Richard Avedon, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Mark di Suvero, Barkley Hendricks, Jacob Lawrence, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Andy Warhol, Jack Whitten and others, the exhibition highlights the wide-ranging aesthetic approaches artists used to address the struggle for racial justice.  Situating the artwork within the larger context of the Civil Rights movement, the presentation examines the ways in which artists aligned themselves with the campaign to end discrimination, bridging racial borders through creative work and protest.
