Virtual Contemplative Social Justice Art Tour of Penn’s Outdoor Sculptures

Register
Louise Nevelson’s sculpture, Atmosphere and Environment XII (1970)

What does art have to say about social justice? Allow Penn’s outdoor sculptures to speak to you (and indulge your nostalgia for Penn’s campus), as we spend an hour together contemplating, discussing, and learning about some of Penn’s sculpture collection from a social justice perspective. We will explore simple wellness practices such as beholding and deep breathing. We will also share our perspectives on what we “see” when we take time to pause and really look at sculpture. Our co-sponsor, the Netter Center, will teach us about civic engagement opportunities at Penn and how to avoid burn-out through sustainable reflection. Finally, we will learn from our university curator and collections manager more about these pieces of art that ground our campus home here at Penn. This tour will include: Jacob Epstein’s “Social Consciousness”; Louise Nevelson’s “Atmosphere and Environment”; Alexander Archipenko’s “King Solomon” and Robert Indiana’s “Love.”

This virtual tour and discussion will happen over Zoom. Registration is required. This event is open to Penn students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

Co-sponsored by the Netter Center.
