NEH on the Road: For All the World to See

In 2016, the Lyman Allyn Art Museum will host the NEH On the Road traveling exhibition, "For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights." Support is sought for public programs accompanying the exhibition. Programs will focus on the impact of visual culture in the Civil Rights Era and today as well as the role of artmaking as a means of communicating identity and driving social change. Programs will be geared towards both adults and children and will include a summer reading program and day-long event featuring children's writers who write about the experience of children in the Civil Rights Era, creative workshops with a local schools and an arts/social justice youth group culminating in the presentation of an original performance based on the exhibit, and lectures and panels by local college and university faculty on subjects of civil rights over the past half century.
