Alum Priya Frank (’11, Cultural Studies) discussed Seattle Art Museum’s (SAM) exhibit “Figuring History” on KING5 TV’s New Day Northwest.  Figuring History features the works of Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, and Mickalene Thomas, three contemporary American artists from different generations, who challenge the Western tradition of History Painting and its underrepresentation of people of color.

Frank, Associate Director for Community Programs and co-chair of SAM's Equity Team, is extremely proud to promote this exhibition and the artists. Watch the video.

SAM has organized several events to support the exhibit, including the free event, Legendary Children, on Saturday, April 14.  Legendary Children is “an evening of representation, dance, empowerment, art, and social justice that transforms through QTPOC voices ringing loud and clear.”
