Event Description
The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to present Witness: Themes of Social Justice in Contemporary Printmaking and Photography from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation opening September 15 and continuing through December 20 in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Drawn from one of the legendary contemporary print collections in the United States, Witness explores issues of race, identity, and social justice in contemporary printmaking and photography. The exhibition has been organized by Portland, Oregon art historian and scholar Elizabeth Bilyeu and explores four thematic sections: Stories and Histories, Pressures of Pop Culture, Challenging Expectations of Place, and Unconventional Portraits. The exhibition features 82 prints by 42 nationally and internationally recognized artists, including Enrique Chagoya, Lalla Essaydi, Mildred Howard, Hung Liu, Nicola Lopez, Wendy Red Star (Apsáalooka), Roger Shimomura, Kara Walker, and Marie Watt (Seneca), among others.
