And Still We Rise - update

Greetings All,
Here's an update on the ASWR exhibition.

The Bruce Museum presents "And Still We Rise" Public Programs - January 16, 2016 - April 24, 2016
The public programs accompanying And Still We Rise: Race, Culture, and Visual Conversation are designed to complement the exhibition’s exploration of the intersections between art and social justice. Through these film and lecture series, we aim to contextualize the quilts exhibited in And Still We Rise, helping visitors to understand these quilts within a larger tradition of American craft as something that engages with both cultural history and contemporary social issues.
Monday Morning Lectures on Craft and Social Change in America
Admission: free for members, $7 non-members.
No advance registration required.
10:00-11:15 am. February 29, 2016: Lecture by Ed Johnetta Miller, textile artist.
10:00-11:15 am. March 7, 2016: Lecture by Dr. Myrah Brown Green, art historian and quilt artist.

10:00-11:15 am. March 21, 2016: Lecture by Ruthie Dibble, PhD student at Yale. Lecture will discuss how the production of textiles allowed African American and white women to renegotiate their place in the social fabric of the United States during the Civil War, situating the quilts in the exhibition within this longer history of emancipation and textile production.
Craft in America Screenings
Beginning on January 20, 2016, we will be screening specials from Craft in America, the Peabody Award-winning series originally broadcast on Public Television. Through themes such as “Memory,” “Community,” and “Family,” the films in this series highlight America’s rich cultural history, and the ways in which artisans use crafts to grapple with contemporary issues. Films are on Wednesday mornings at 10:30am. Each film is 50 minutes long, and followed by 15 minutes of Q&A with a Bruce Museum staff member.
