Join Associate Curator of American Art, Gordon Wilkins, to explore artworks from the Addison Gallery of American Art exhibition To Make Visible: Art and Activism, 1980–2000, and discuss the ways in which artists use their work to hold a mirror up to the injustices of their time, combat apathy, and provoke change.
Registration is required through Zoom.

About the Addison Gallery of American Art
Home to a world-class collection of American art, the Addison Gallery presents an adventurous exhibition program, hosts a vital artist-in-residence program, and works collaboratively with students and faculty at Phillips Academy and in neighboring communities. Through its ongoing query What is America?, the Addison seeks to engage with the history of American art and American experience—past, present, and future.
