As part of Washington University’s Diversity Passport program, University staff and faculty 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 Edward Sheriff Curtis, Jeanne Dunning, Nicole Eisenman, José Clemente Orozco, and Howardena Pindell form the basis for the discussion.

Note: Attendees will be standing for the majority of the time. No food, drink, pens, or bulky items are permitted in the Study Room. Pencils and clipboards will be provided. There are secure storage options available.
