The kick-off event for "Art Illuminating Human Rights" will explore race and civil rights in the United States. Following a gallery tour, Jonathan Odell, author of Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League, will join in a conversation with Duchess Harris, chair of Macalester College’s American Studies Department, and the audience.

The Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Advocates for Human Rights are collaborating to present the "Art Illuminating Human Rights" series. The series is inspired by the kaleidoscope and the intricate, prismatic reflections it creates. Just as tapping and twisting a kaleidoscope brings multi-faceted, colorful patterns into focus, series’ events will be the catalyst for participants to wrestle with human rights issues and to consider the diversity of opinions that will be revealed.

The partnership is forged through a shared commitment to freedom, justice, and peace.

Events are free to the public; however space is limited. To make a reservation, call 612-870-6323 or reserve online.
