Past Event

Art & Social Justice Stories

Jan 19 – 21 2021

Seattle Art Museum


NOON – 12:15 PM

Over the past several years, SAM has presented Art & Social Justice Tours during the week of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Facilitated by SAM staff, the tours invited conversation and personal responses based on artists and artworks currently on view in SAM’s galleries. Since we can’t be together in the galleries this year, we’ve invited SAM staff to reflect on the important connection between art and social justice from home. Tune in to SAM’s Instagram stories throughout the week to hear SAM staff members offer perspectives on art at SAM, or in their homes, that honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the urban Native peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
