Selections from the ASU Art Museum’s collection of historic and contemporary artworks which provide a broader social, cultural and political context for walking. Maurice Prendergast’s 1916 painting, Early Summer, captures well-to-do families walking and enjoying the public space. Reginald Marsh’s double sided drawing from 1944 shows two strong and bold women striding through the city streets, ignoring onlookers stares and catcalls. McCallum and Tarry’s recent multimedia work captures the tumultuous historic moment that a school was desegregated in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957 when nine African American students walked into the school.
