Illustration carries a uniquely powerful voice that has directly and historically persuaded perspectives on race and culture in the United States and abroad. This talk by Robyn Phillips-Pendleton will explore how race is portrayed in the work of J.C. Leyendecker and other illustrators of the early twentieth century. Phillips-Pendleton is an artist, storyteller, lecturer, writer, and an associate professor of Visual Communications at University of Delaware, Newark, in the Department of Art & Design.

Presented free with Museum admissions thanks to the generosity of Macy's.
