The Artist as a Social Conscience

All art was once contemporary and, as such reflects the social and cultural context of its time. This tour explores how artists throughout history have used their artwork to give voice to and provoke dialogue about critical issues such as racism, class, gender, war, freedom, human dignity, ecology, and consumerism. This tour is aligned with state content standards for history/social science for grades 8 through 12 and visual arts standards for all grades. This tour is free for students and accompanying adults.

Suited for: Grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
