Join the Block Museum for a series of shared conversations about artworks from the collection that explore ideas of justice, race, and equity. These online, discussion-based lunchtime tours are led by Block staff and inspired by Just Mercy.  This series is presented in conjunction with The Block’s 40th anniversary, a year-long celebration of the Museum’s collection as a tool to help us reflect upon, question, and reimagine the past. 


The Block Museum of Art: Just Mercy

 Throughout the 2020-21 academic year, The Block Museum of Art will engage the urgent themes of Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy, Northwestern University’s One Book One Northwestern (OBON) selection.  The Block will host digital dialogues and cinema screenings, and provide teaching resources that use artworks as points of entry for connecting to the ideas of the text.
