Tales of Art At the Block

Museums are full of stories. Join us for read-aloud story zones, art-making, and a family-friendly tour of our galleries to uncover more stories hidden beneath the surface of the art at the Block. This program is geared for children ages 3+. Space is limited and registration is required.


Branding Quality TV

Wednesday, May 16, 6PM


How do representations of women of color serve to "brand" TV networks and film studios? Join professors Aymar Jean Christian and Miriam Petty as they screen clips of recent critically acclaimed shows like Insecure and Queen Sugar and discuss how they fit into strategies of major media brands. This screening will also include the screening of a Chicago-made indie TV series developed by Christian.

Presented by the Block Museum of Art in partnership with the 2018 Evanston Literary Festival.
