Women’s Work at Hull-House and Beyond: The Feminist Agenda through Arts and Crafts

Art and Art History Associate Professor Mel Potter will host a conversation with Jennifer Scott, Director and Chief Curator at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, on the history and legacy of woman-centric community building at Hull-House.

Hosted by Columbia’s Department of Exhibitions, Performance, and Student Spaces, Art and Art History Associate Professor Mel Potter will host a conversation with Jennifer Scott, the Director and Chief Curator at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum for the “Women’s Work at Hull-House and Beyond: The Feminist Agenda through Arts and Crafts” scholar-and-residence talk.

“Women’s Work at Hull-House and Beyond: The Feminist Agenda through Arts and Crafts” will examine the history of woman-centric community building at Hull-House, the role of art as a powerful social and political tool to transform a society, and the influence of this work beyond the settlement. The Hull-House settlement provided safe community spaces to women to support their liberation.

This talk is held concurrently with "Participatory Arts: Crafting Social Change at Hull-House," an exhibition and programming series exploring the history of the extensive arts programs and artist participation at Hull-House and how these efforts catalyzed social change, running through May 3, 2019.
