Can you hear me? exhibit at the Akron Art Museum in December.  Kent State University graduate students enrolled in Boske’s EDAD 6/76529 Leading for Social Justice course collaborated on the exhibit.  Since 2010, the Leading for Social Justice Art Exhibits have captivated audiences with their thought-provoking artmaking, reaching thousands of attendees for these one-night events. The purpose of the artmaking is to promote meaningful social change in P-12 school communities by bringing together a myriad of artists ranging from children, educators, community organizations, and community artist mentors to address prevailing struggles and inequities facing P-12 U.S. public schools.  The exhibits continue to be the only communal art exhibits of their kind, which include authentic collaborations among aspiring school leaders, teachers, P-12 children, nonprofit organizations, and community artists.
