The Wing Luke Museum and several partner organizations are hosting a series of community discussions about race as inspiration for a 2013 exhibit based on those discussions.
The first partner to host a discussion is the Northwest African American Museum, which is holding a potluck and community discussion Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
In 2004, the Wing Luke Museum opened a powerful and innovative exhibit: “Beyond Talk: Redrawing Race.” The show included 20 works by a dozen artists exploring race and racism in the U.S., along with interactive installations designed to draw visitors into a deeper conversation, and to spur them to take action in their communities.
In 2013 a new art exhibit will open at The Wing. Like the 2004 show, this exhibit will grow out of community discussions about race and racism — this time with a focus on intergenerational conversations. Several Seattle organizations will help spark these discussions by hosting community Potlucks to stir conversations about similar topics of today. NAAM will kick off the Potluck series on Thursday, February 16, 2012 with dinner and activities led by Youth Undoing Institutionalized Racism. Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m., activities start at 6:00 p.m.
