About the speaker

30 Americans, on view at Joslyn Art Museum through May 5, brings together over 60 works by contemporary African American artists focusing on important issues of racial, gender, and sexual identity; ongoing narratives of racial inequality in the United States; poverty; racial stereotyping; and the power of protest. Through painting, photography, works on paper, sculpture, installation, and video, these nationally and internationally recognized black artists offer a challenging account of race in the United States and how our shared history continues to shape the ways we interact and engage with our fellow citizens today.

Highlighting 30 Americans, Karin Campbell, Joslyn’s Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art, will discuss Joslyn Art Museum’s commitment to broadening the presence of underrepresented voices in its galleries and programming. At 8 am, join us for conversation, and coffee and breakfast breads, kindly donated by Abraham Catering. Program begins at 8:30 am - and includes time for exhibition viewing - before sending you on your way at 9:30 am. See you then!
