Art in the Afternoon: Social Justice: Artists Take Aim

October 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

‣ Register

Art in the Afternoon is a four-part lecture series presented by Muscarelle Docents. Join us Wednesdays in October for these illuminated art history presentations.

Francisco de Goya is at once regarded as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. In 1814, Goya broke with the conventions of Christian art and traditional depictions of war. In two magnificent paintings, he documented the raw depredations of power over political dissent. Through Goya, we open the door to contemporary artists in the permanent collection of the Muscarelle Museum of Art. This survey by Docent Harry Chancey will cover the many ways artists take aim at social justice – today and in days gone by.

Harry Chancey is an Emmy award-winning television producer and former program executive for WNET/13 Public Television in New York now serving as a Muscarelle Docent.
