systemic inequalities and arts institutions

August 12th 2020

6:00pm – 8:00pm

Join The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art and the St. Petersburg College Foundation for a riveting panel discussion about institutional responsibility in ensuring social equity. With SPC being the first higher education institution in the South East accredited in educating Black and African-American communities, the College holds a certain responsibility in continuing to uplift communities of color . Systemic Inequalities and Arts Institutions will include a collaborative effort between the SPC Foundation, the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, and the SPC Humanities Department to facilitate a discussion related related to the often dysphoric effects of Western arts institutions while looking into how recent events have been a catalyst in increasing the scope of collecting and showcasing minority made art. We will also talk about the importance of facilitating artistic careers and address limitations that have often hindered visual creative output in these communities.


Panelists include Dr. Barbara Hubbard, Dean of Humanities at St. Petersburg College; internationally recognized multidisciplinary artist Elizabeth A. Baker; Executive Director of the Baltimore Museum of Art Christopher Bedford, and others.
