'Right on!' Civil justice art at the Museum of Boulder
‘Right On’ is a series of paintings in response to the social crisis related to the 2020 protests and systemic racism. Artist and CU Ph.D student, Angie Eng, appropriates conceptual artist, On Kawara’s ‘Date Series’ and transforms it into a civil rights theme. 32 plaques painted in skin tone colors each have a date and a QR code. Each date corresponds to a historical event or Supreme Court decision related to civil rights in the United States. The selected dates are not limited to racial justice, but also include historical events addressing discrimination according to gender, disabilities, immigration, class, and sexuality.
The project will be on view September 1 until the elections outside of the Museum of Boulder, Colorado. Eng is selling 10 at $1000/each whereby 50% of proceeds go to the ACLU and Creative Catalyzers.
