Documents of ResistanceDocuments of Resistance: ‘Timelines’ is a series of workshops that explore the intersection of art and activism by artists of color from 1960s to the present. ‘Timelines’ is a collaborative art-making workshop. After a brief introduction participants will create timelines using graphics, images, and text. We will have some art supplies and participants can bring their own art materials, images for collage, texts, graphics, and clippings related to art and activism by artists of color.
