Diversity, Perception, and Responsibility in Illustration with Robyn Phillips-Pendleton Thursday, July 7, 5:30
Blatant, subtle, or perceived racial stereotypes created by illustrators, and sanctioned by art directors and publishers, have been woven into the fabric of the relationship between imagery and text, and shaped American’s perception of race for over four centuries. Robyn Phillips-Pendleton, Associate Professor of Visual Communication at the University of Delaware, is an artist for the United States Air Force Art Program, and has created illustrations for magazines, books, and educational institutions.
