Join faculty, staff, students, and members of the community as together we explore the question, “How does the political context of art affect the way we consume it?” On March 4, 2020 in the WWU Gallery, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., a panel presentation will be followed by small group conversation in the WWU Gallery. This Teaching-Learning Academy dialogue-based event complements the Western Gallery’s current exhibition, "Knowledge Bennett: Road to Damascus." Knowledge’s work appropriates pop culture imagery to address and critique American idealism, political corruption, and systematic racial stratification from past to the present.

The TLA dialogue events offer students, faculty, staff, and community members a chance to come together and explore questions and issues that affect us all. These dialogues also give participants a way to explore difficult topics, practice and refine productive communication strategies, and develop interpersonal communication and collaboration skills.
