Big Questions: Can art inspire action?

In times of crisis art provides hope and inspiration, but that’s only part of its power. In neighborhoods around the world, art and design are building community and fostering healing in places and people injured by history, natural disasters, racism, and other strife. In a post-pandemic world, how can art help us transcend emergency and attain emergence? 

Join artist, designer, and Media and Cultural Studies Professor John Kim, and Quito Ziegler '98, in conversation with President Suzanne Rivera.
