Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Linda Earle (Professor of Practice, Art Management) has been appointed the PEW Center for Arts and Heritage Visiting Scholar for 2021. In this role, she will organize a series of conversations with Center constituents, staff, and thinking partners considering how Black archives can serve as a framework for a multivalent exploration of Black cultural production.
