WE THE PEOPLE: American Art of Social Concern

Date: January 20, 2018 to March 25, 2018,
Venue: Ulrich Museum of Art-Wichita State University - 1845 N. Fairmount, Wichita

The Event:

We live in a time of heightened awareness of the broad injustices within our society. Despite the fact that the United States of America was founded on the princicple of equal rights for all citizens, the definition of "all citizens" has shifted over our history. Race, gender and ownership of property have been some of the qualifiers used to deny people equal rights and protections under our Constition. 

Since the mid-19th century, artists have voices the need for greater awareness and progress toward addressing social concerns such as sexism, economic inequality and political corruption. The works of art presented in WE THE PEOPLE span from the McCarthy-era of the 1950s and continue to the controversies of today. The exhibition is drawn from the extensive permanent collection of the Ulrich Museum, now numbering almost 7,000 works of art, and is collaboratively curated and presented by Ulrich Director Bob Workman, WSU School of Art, Design & Creative Industries Assistant Professor Dr. Brittany Lockard, and the 11 students in the Fall 2017 class Realism/Activism/American Art.
