Presentation today by artist and 2017 TED fellow Damon Davis
Damon Davis, artist and 2017 TED fellow, will discuss his All Hands on Deck project at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in 101 Thompson Hall.
Davis also will screen excerpts from his documentary "Whose Streets?," which was included in the U.S. Documentary category of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
A reception will follow at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art.
Davis started the All Hands on Deck project as part of the Black Lives Matter movement in his home city of St. Louis. The project honors "that diverse collective dedicated to protecting our human rights, no matter race, age, or gender."
Davis' presentation is organized by the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art in partnership with the K-State Black Student Union. The event is co-sponsored by K-State art department and funded in part by the SGA fine arts fee; Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies at K-State Libraries; and American ethnic studies department.
