SAIC’s Toward an Anti-Racist Art Ecosystem conference series consists of three dialogues on anti-racism featuring art and design industry leaders from various backgrounds, including art and design education, museum practices, galleries, auction houses, practicing artists, and more. The first of the three events in the spring of 2021 focused on Chicago’s art ecosystem. The second event in fall 2022 broadened the scope to include nationally-based leaders in the arts.

The Toward an Anti-Racist Art Ecosystem Conference Series is generously supported by Hindman Auctions.
