Led by Victoria Shaw, Ph.D., “Making Change through Making Art” will bring together Detroit-based visual artists with students from Detroit Public Schools Community District in a new art-making elective class to explore how engaging with visual arts can promote social justice activism.


The class will take place in winter 2023 at The School at Marygrove (TSM) with support from University of Michigan Marsal Family School of Education and the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and will culminate in the installation of a student art gallery and a Community Conversation about how art practice can contribute to social change. Detroit-based partners in conceptualizing and leading this work include TSM Teacher Chandrika Williams and Teaching Artist Yvette Rock from Live Coal Gallery.
