RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
September 21, 2020 – May 30, 2021
CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
Duke Chapel will host an online workshop, “Signs of Hope: Arts and Activism,” using the RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! outdoor exhibition as a starting place to reflect on issues of faith and justice in Durham. The outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by nationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems emphasizes the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on the lives of communities of color, through large-scale banners and window clings, posters, street signs and more.
The first part of this workshop will include a presentation by Marshall N. Price, PhD, chief curator and Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum. A community leader and a student will also each speak about connections among art, faith, and justice. The second part of the workshop will allow participants to share their own reflections.
To learn more and receive a link to participate, email the Chapel’s Community Minister, the Rev. Breana van Velzen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Nasher Museum is fully open to the public with ongoing health and safety protocols and free admission for all, including Thursday nights and weekends. We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher.
