Toward Equity in the Arts

Free, advance registration requested
Join us for a conversation with Jess Solomon (Art in Praxis), Sheila Gaskins (ART-PART’HEID), and Darryl Ratcliff (Michelada Think Tank) about equity in the arts. This talk will examine how race and class have impacted access and inclusion practices for funding, promotion, and exhibition opportunities in the arts, and will look at efforts to improve equity in these areas.  Jonothan Gray and Chelsea Gilmer (Baltimore Urban Debate League) will open the evening with performances of their spoken word poetry.

The annual lecture is held in honor of the Walters’ founding Director of Education, Ted Low, and focuses on an important current topic in the museum field.
