Artistic Expression, a 3-part series

This three-part series in collaboration with the New York State Bar Association EASL Section’s Diversity Committee and Fine Arts Committee will explore the world of activist art from artistic, legal, and social perspectives. Tonight, we begin with Activist Art: An Artist’s Perspective. The discussion will consider the level of vulnerability required to make art in pursuit of social change, the personal motivations for such a practice and address the legal concerns for artists contemplating artistic activism. Speakers will include Ming Smith, Adrienne Fields, and Zoe Buckman, Dáreece Walker, and Halima Taha as moderator. 

Part II on institutional considerations and Part III on digital issues will be held on November 15 and January 15.

The National Arts Club is thrilled to launch our 2019-20 season with "Multiple Perspectives: Women in the Arts,” a three-month festival (September - November 2019) exploring women creators, leaders, and innovators. The festival features over 50 performances, readings, presentations, and exhibitions focused on the arts, past, present, and future. “Since its founding in 1898, women have been welcomed as full members of our Club. ‘Multiple Perspectives’ is an opportunity for the Club to build on this commitment while fulfilling our mission to promote the arts,” said Linda Zagaria, Club President.
