October 11, 2018

As part of Washington University’s Diversity Passport program, University staff and faculty members are invited to a conversation on race, discrimination, and civil rights in the United States, prompted by artworks from the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum’s permanent collection. Works by Glenn Ligon, Catherine Opie, Diego Rivera, and Andy Warhol will form the basis for the discussion.

Note: Attendees will be standing for the majority of time. No food, drinks, backpacks, purses, hats, sunglasses, coats, or pens are permitted in the Study Room. Pencils and clipboards will be provided. There are secure storage options available.
