Uproar! The Art of Social Engagement: A Pop-Up Community Exhibit

March 9 - April 8, 2023

Exhibitions are free with General Admission.

Uproar! The Art of Social Engagement: A Pop-Up Community Exhibit is part of She Roars! A Series of Lectures, Workshops, and Exhibitions Celebrating Women’s Contributions to the Humanities conceived and organized by South Texas College Library Services and Art Department for March, Women’s History Month. She Roars! includes exhibitions, a self-defense class, a film documentary, story-time workshops and lectures by founding a member of the artist collective, The Guerrilla Girls and illustrator and author Angela Dominguez. The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous collective of female-identifying artists who, since 1985, have utilized humor and stark visuals to spread awareness about the bias within art, film, and popular culture to ignite the sparks of social change.

She Roars! programs and the Uproar! exhibit seek to engage the publics’ understanding of art and its role in culture, support the academic curriculum, and inspire continued education through direct engagement with artists, scholars, and original works of art. The events aim to inspire students and community members to think deeply about collaborative and creative solutions to social issues, locally and globally.

She Roars! programs and exhibitions are made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
