Convening a panel of internationally acclaimed artists featured in In Pursuit: Artists’ Perspectives on a Nation, the National Liberty Museum presents a discussion on the power of art and freedom of expression. Moderator Stephanie Sparling Williams, Curator of American Art at the Brooklyn Museum, will lead the discussion, exploring the important role that art plays in liberal societies and the real tensions that emerge when artists engage in contemporary political and social movements. Hear directly from artists on how they maneuver in a challenging era of political polarization and around forces of social moderation and even censorship. Is art ever just… art? Or is the personal still political.

Presented as part of Civic Season, the panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A facilitated by Gen Z Civic Season Design Fellow Nsisong Udosen.

This event is online on Zoom. Virtual meeting information will be sent via email upon registration.


About Civic Season

Juneteenth. July 4th. The 250th anniversary of the United States in 2026. These celebrations are made by us – people joining together to acknowledge our past, strengthen our present and build our future, together. Civic Season’s goal is to reach 75 million people in the United States by 2026 – the number of Gen Z that will be voting age. In partnership with our Gen Z Civic Season Design Fellows, hundreds of institutions and communities of all shapes and sizes are hosting events, inviting dialogue, and making space for “we the people” to write the next chapter of the United States.
