Social Justice Art Festival @ Snyder-Phillips Hall
Jan 24 @ 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Social Justice Art Festival @ Snyder-Phillips Hall

The 2nd Annual Social Justice Art Festival is a one (1)-day event co-hosted by James Madison College (JMC) and the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities (RCAH). Art is a useful tool that encompasses multiple mediums and has the ability to inspire and convey messages that we often grapple with or relate to in our everyday lives. By using art, festival participants have the opportunity to engage in a variety of topics in meaningful and creative ways. The goal of this event is to provide a unique platform that engages undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and the greater MSU/East Lansing community around social justice topics through artistic expression. The inspiration for this event is derived from contemporary art shows and local festivals that capture the sentiment of art, unity, and justice.
