December 6, 2012

An article highlights Wayne State University's Urbanology: Art as Activism course offered through the Department of Art and Art History. Students, along with WSU associate professor Marilyn Zimmerman, recently visited with activist Grace Lee Boggs at the Boggs Center. The course uses Boggs' book "The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the 21st Century." Student Todd Davis said, "The Art as Activism class at Wayne State and reading Grace's book have changed my life. I'm inspired to push hard to find the next paradigm in how we look at urban art as a catalyst for change."
