The Catalyst and Preservation of Cultural Institutions

May 27, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Representatives from Chicago-based, culture-specific arts institutions discuss how such institutions are uniquely positioned to take on the role of culture keepers and enable communities of color to find power in their collective identities. Leading the roundtable conversation are Debra Yepa-Pappan, artist and Native Community Engagement Coordinator for the Native American Exhibition Hall at the Field Museum; Cesareo Moreno, Visual Arts Director and Chief Curator at National Museum of Mexican Art; and Carla Stillwell, Executive Director of the Stillwell Institute for Contemporary Black Art. The conversation will be moderated by Pascale Ife Williams. This event is in conjunction with our Faheem Majeed exhibition, Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden: Shrouds.
