Art, Popular Culture, and Racial Iconography

Developed by Joni Boyd Acuff, PhD, The Ohio State University
Associate Professor of Arts Administration, Education & Policy

Participants (preservice and early career art educators) will investigate the ways in which images have mediated their understandings of race and racial identity. This professional development opportunity answers the question, “Why is race, culture and ethnicity relevant in art education?” The activity counters the narrative that skill and techniques should be the only focus in art classrooms.
