The Rockwell works with the local community to narrate these unique tours, bringing the art to life with a goal for accessibility at the core.
The Artists as Activists tour investigates a wide range of media and decades that demonstrate different forms activism can take. The tour includes artists who lived well over 100 years ago through today, whose basketry, oil paintings, photography, sculpture and more give us a glimpse into what being an activist has meant in different periods of American history. Topics include animal rights, humanitarian issues of representation, race and prejudice, feminism, intellectual property, LGBTQ+ activism, systems of religious oppression and more.
Narrators: Molly Bierman, Sharon Bryant, Alex Dell, Anjanette Lecher
