Details:

How does an artist’s work speak across generations? Join Corinne Granof, Block Museum curator, and Scott Krafft, curator of Northwestern’s McCormick Library of Special Collections, in an exhibition walk-through focusing on William Blake’s impact on American artists, poets and musicians from the 1940s through the 1960s. They will explore themes of rebellion and resistance, hippie culture and youth movements, and parallels between countercultures across centuries.
