Amanda WilliamsIn-person Program 

How can design catalyze conversations about privilege, gentrification, and perceptions of communities of color? Blurring the lines between art, architecture and social commentary, Amanda Williams investigates topics like prejudice, gun violence, and shared cultural experience with her evocative projects like What Black Is This You Say?, Color(ed) Theory and Rolling Out The Red Carpet for White Flight. Join us for an exploration of Williams's work and unique artistic perspective on color, race, and space.
