Is there room for art in our movements? Is there room for movements in art? This talk will explore the history of the intersection of art and movements, as well as artists and activists, throughout the United States since the early 1900s, with an eye for what we can learn from this history and apply to the present to make our movements stronger and keep art in the hands of the people.
