Exactly how different is Social Realism from Socialist Realism?  Are there any similarities between these seemingly distant genres?

Dr. Izabela Gabrielson will explore the nuances of American Realism from Norman Rockwell to the Works Progress Administration and compare it with Socialist Realism, which was imposed on poster art throughout the former Eastern Bloc.

Dr. Izabela Gabrielson is on the faculty of Northwest College of Art and Design, where she teaches history of illustration and art.

Event is free and open to the public.
