Race and Social Justice in Art
CHAPTER 1: Introduction
The Blanton has an ongoing commitment to social justice. Alongside our country’s much-needed dialogue about police brutality and structural racism and how it impacts Black and Brown communities, we are sharing this resource to highlight the voices of artists, scholars, and community leaders that have addressed race, inequality, and justice through exhibitions and programs at the Blanton. We hope this content and other core offerings at our museum–from the art we collect to the programs we host–will foster meaningful dialogue about race and inequity in the art world, in our local community in Austin and Central Texas, and in this country. This is an evolving resource and we hope to hear from our community to grow and expand this list—we welcome your suggestions and responses at firstname.lastname@example.org.
