Voices of Change: Social Protest Through the Arts & Humanities

Voices of ChangeThe Maryland Humanities Council has awarded a grant of $9,750 to support an exhibit and related programming at the Hays-Heighe House in FY16. The title of the exhibit is: “Voices of Change: Social Protest Through the Arts & Humanities.”

Using exhibits and programs, the project will stimulate thought and discussion about the ways that music, literature, and visual arts have intersected with moments of social protest in the United States in the modern era. It is organized around four themes: war/peace; labor/economic justice; civil and human rights; and environmental issues.

Guest curators for the exhibit are Jeffrey Ball (lead curator), Neil Anderson-Himmelspach, Benny Russell and Colleen Webster.
