Ann Hamilton’s O N E E V E R Y O N E · St. Louis (2015) is a public art project commissioned through Washington University’s Art on Campus program for Thomas and Jennifer Hillman Hall, the newest building for the George Warren Brown School of Social Work, which was dedicated on October 2, 2015. Developed in response to and in collaboration with the Brown School, this permanent art installation consists of a series of 33 individual portraits of students, faculty, staff, and community partners.

Join a public discussion about this Art on Campus installation with Cynthia D. Williams, assistant dean for community partnerships in the Brown School; De Andrea Nichols (BFA 10, MSW 14), alumna, designer and director of Civic Creatives; and Leslie Markle, curator for public art. Topics will include the role of photography in Hamilton’s artistic practice, the process of community outreach in the realization of her project for the Brown School, and the possibilities for public art as a platform for dialogue and exchange.
