Image Picker for Section 0

In conjunction with the exhibition Clark Fox: Icon Chains – Arts & Social Justice, Gaiter, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Art & Design, and Kalmbach, an MFA alum, address the topic of art and social change.​

Colette Gaiter will talk about former Black Panther party artist, designer and illustrator Emory Douglas’s work on The Black Panther newspaper in the 1960s and 70s. His subversive and proactive political cartoons, collages and drawings visualized the Black Power movement and galvanized activism that persists into the twenty-first century. He currently travels globally to give talks about his previous work and collaborates with indigenous people in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico-any place where people use art for liberation from injustice and oppression.  

Michael Kalmbach is the founder of the Creative Vision Factory. Creative Vision Factory fosters the creative potential of individuals on the behavioral health spectrum in a studio art environment that cultivates integration with the local community through a program of exhibitions, workshops, and communal workspace. The Creative Vision Factory is where individuals share their experience, strength, and hope. Their vision is a community free of stigma, where the creative vision of all individuals is valued.
