Artist and activist Nicolas Lampert will present at the Haggerty Museum of Art on Tuesday, March 28, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. He will examine the role of art in nonviolent social movements and explore examples of how art has been used by activists organizing for immigrant rights, unions and environmental justice.
Lampert is this year’s Peacemaker in Residence with the Marquette University Center for Peacemaking, where he facilitated a community art project for the Justice In Action conference.
He is an art organizer for Voces de la Frontera, member of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, member of the Art Build Workers and faculty member at UWM-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts.
His first book, “A People’s Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements,” is part of the People’s History Series edited by Howard Zinn.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Peacemaking and the Haggerty Museum of Art.
