Allan Ginsberg with puppet, by Dona Ann McAdams
Please note: this free event will be held on the Digital Programs portion of our website, our Facebook page, and our YouTube channel. Pre-registration is not required for this event.

In the 1990s, artists such as David Wojnarowicz, Karen Finley, and Ron Athey served as lightning rods for outrage over the appropriateness of their receiving support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Photographer Dona Ann McAdams and curator John Killacky discuss the culture wars of this era and McAdams’ exhibition at the Helen Day Art Center, “Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts.”

McAdams’ extraordinarily compelling images of the raw fierceness and passion of these artists included in the exhibition will be featured.
