As our culture moves from an oral tradition to a visual one, strong visual literacy skills will be increasingly essential to interpreting the information around us. This two-part Visual Resources Association Foundation regional workshop will provide participants with critical looking skills, as well as tools and techniques for enhancing the visual literacy of others. The morning session of this workshop will be held at the ICP Museum, exploring visual literacy through objects in the exhibition Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change. The afternoon session will be hosted at the ICP School. Through a variety of interactive exercises, this session will explore more advanced visual literacy concepts, and examine how participants might apply their new skills to their own work and institutions.

Sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the Visual Resources Association Foundation.
