A new exhibit at the Chippewa Valley Museum focuses on civil rights.
For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights, a nationally touring exhibition from NEH on the Road, will be on display from April 5 – May 26, 2013. Through a compelling collection of photographs, television clips, art posters, and historic artifacts, the exhibition traces how images and media disseminated to the American public transformed the modern civil rights movement and jolted Americans, both black and white, out of a state of denial or complacency.
Saturday, April 6: For All the World to See Community Day, 11 am – 4 pm. Immerse yourself in the visual culture surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and explore its beginnings and legacy. Visit with community leaders during our panel discussion or throughout the day at display booths offering ideas and information exchange. Live presentations will be scheduled hourly, including a musical performance by the Eau Claire Gospel Choir, an author talk, film screening, and spoken word session. Explore activist art and create an original piece to share or take home. For a full listing of activities and times, please visit cvmuseum.com. This event is free and open to the public.
