How do artworks talk to us… and to one another? And how can we learn to talk back? Join Northwestern undergraduates in The Block Museum Student Docent Program to consider these questions in a unique lunchtime series. Through half-hour discussion-based presentations, Northwestern docents from interdisciplinary fields of study will consider two works from the museum collection that have something to say to one another (and to us.) This season, the team will share artworks in our current exhibition For One and All: Prints from The Block’s Collection, and our upcoming Fall 2021 exhibition, Who Says, Who Shows, What Counts.

On this date, Claire Corridon (’21, American Studies and Political Science) and Karan Gowda (’22, Biological Sciences) will be discussing Untitled (Demonstrators), 1937 by Henry Simon (American, born Poland, 1901–1995) and A Message in Nestle Water Bottles from Shea Cobb, Amber Hasan, Macana Roxie and LaToya Ruby Frazier at Sussex Drive and West Pierson Road, Flint MI, 2017 by LaToya Ruby Frazier (American born 1982).


Online, free and open to all.
