Art & Censorship to be Focus of Falmouth Art Center Conversation

FALMOUTH – A community conversation will be held later this month at the Falmouth Art Center to discuss Art and Censorship.

The public is invited to the forum on October 24 at 6 p.m.

The conversation is in response to growing concern over a recent incident in which artist Salley Mavor was asked to remove political content from a show that was to be displayed at Highfield Hall and Gardens in Falmouth.

The incident has led to a discussion in town about the roles of artists, art nonprofits and gallery space.

Panelists will include artist Salley Mavor of Falmouth; Nora Burchfield, who is Executive Director of the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts; and Dr. Elaine A. King, a part-time Bourne resident who is an art curator, critic, professor and editor. King is co-editor of the book of essays, “Ethics and the Visual Arts.”

Mavor’s show, Liberty and Justice: The Satirical Art of Salley Mavor, is currently on view at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell.
