Film Screening "Painted in Stone: The Kentucky Mural"
This film explores the racially-charged controversy surrounding a 1930's Works Progress Administration mural at the University of Kentucky. It includes a discussion of public art, censorship, and student activism, as well as a short history of African American students at UK. Interviews with student activists, artists, an art historian, cultural geographer, and media scholar are punctuated by footage of the 2019 mural protest and images from the occupation of the UK administration building by student protestors.
