Description

Join us for a celebration of the life and art of Ben Jones, highlighted by Jones' latest film Resistance. The program will honor Jones for the international scope of his work and the knowledge imparted to his students. New Jersey born artist, mentor, teacher and activist, Ben Jones uses his art to bring awareness to the plight of people throughout the world. Originally from Paterson, NJ, Ben's artistic journey through social activism began during the Civil Rights Movement. He is a founding member of MAM's African American Cultural Committee and an installation of his work, Ben Jones: Envision Empower Embrace is on exhibit on MAM's Laurie Arts Stairway. His work is also included in MAM's exhibition Constructing Identity in America (1766-2017).

Educators earn 2 hours of PD credit.

MAM's Yard School of Art is offering a Master Class with Artist Ben Jones on Saturday, November 17!
