Last year, I had the pleasure of hearing Hank Willis Thomas talk when he was a guest lecturer in one of my graduate school classes. Hank spoke about his illustrious body of work and most notably, shared with the class about his upcoming project, Question Bridge: Black Males. This multidimensional art project is phenomenal on so many levels, but the area I find especially interesting is how he has integrated social media, education, technology, and visitor participation into the work, therefore, exponentially expanding its reach far beyond the physical museum experience.
Question Bridge: Black Males is now on view at the Brooklyn Museum through June 3, 2012 as well as other museums across the country. I can’t wait to go experience it myself and recommend others to check it out as well. But if you can’t make it to the museum, there are plenty of ways to engage with this amazing project without even leaving your home More here.
