This exhibition offers a unique opportunity for students to connect in a deeply personal way with the struggle for civil rights as lived by a major American icon and expressed in this essential National Book Award–winning graphic novel.
With your support, we intend to welcome thousands of students to the Society for the chance to participate in arts educational programming related to this exhibition. With your generous contributions at this opening, you can help us welcome Title I and other special needs schools that would not otherwise have access to the exhibition.
The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece is curated by John Lind and Charles Brownstein. With exhibition text by Jonathan W. Gray.
The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece is sponsored in part by the School of Visual Arts.
