Making History Visible

This event was the capstone event to my year as the President of the Student Advisory Board, during which I focused the event programming on art & activism to reflect the student body’s interest.

I helped create and co-lead a private student tour and discussion of Princeton University Art Museum’s exhibition, Making History Visible: Of American Myths and National Heroes. The exhibition, which featured works by a variety of contemporary artists, including Titus Kaphar and Kara Walker, confronts the paradoxes and injustices of the American past, placing particular emphasis on the legacy of slavery in the United States.

Students from different class years and majors participated and shared their general reactions to the exhibition and sculptural installation but also considered the ways in which art can help us to frame conversations about the role of slavery in Princeton University’s past.
