Past Study Case Display - Art and Protest

Inspired by the theme of Reclaiming Our Campus, twelve works from UMMA's permanent collection were selected to highlight the representation in art of protest, civil rights, and peaceful demonstration. UMMA's Study Cases allow flexible, direct access to the Museum's collection. Art has always - and will always - be an outlet for expression and discussion.
