By SchoolArts Magazine

Amy Sherald, Nick Cave, Beth Cavener, Yung Jake—these are just a few of the contemporary artists SchoolArts magazine has featured in its pages.Every issue presents contemporary artists and artwork because the diversity in expression, and the uncountable cultural, ethnic, gender, and social influences behind contemporary art, allows teachers to provide increasingly diverse student bodies with a broad range of artistic expression. The next title in the SchoolArts CollectionContemporary Art, is filled with lessons that will encourage your students to learn about, respond to, and create contemporary art. Organized into chapters on Identity, Social Issues, Collaboration, and Nontraditional Processes. You’ll also find studio lessons based on concepts and essential questions. Engage students in projects that are meaningful and discover what their voices add to the contemporary conversation.


On March 7, 2021, Frank Juarez presented virtually during the 2021 National Art Education Association. This presentation tapped into integrating the art world into the art room as a multi-dimensional approach to student learning, rigor, and college/career readiness.

On July 17th, 2020 the following 14 local and national arts professionals came together to record a discussion on “The Role of the Traditional Gallery amid George Floyd and Black Lives Matter Protests. America, What Now?”

This video captures a panel discussion on the role of the traditional gallery in the world today as we address systemic issues of race and injustice in this country. The Alice Wilds is focused on promoting art and artists and we acknowledge the need to address these difficult topics and hope to stimulate constructive and sincere conversations for galleries, artists, and our patrons on what practicing anti-racism means in today’s society, and more specifically inside the art world.

This discussion was moderated by Tyanna Buie, artist and educator. Panelists & Contributors included the following gallery owners, curators, artists, and community arts advocates from Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, and New Mexico: Anais Duplan (Panelist), Jenie Gao (Panelist), Michelle Grabner (Panelist), Josh Hintz (Panelist), Frank Juarez (Panelist), Leah Kolb (Panelist), Lucy Mensah, PhD  (Panelist), Polly Morris, PhD (Panelist), Maureen Ragalie (Panelist), John Riepenhoff (Panelist), John Sobczak (Panelist), Kylee Aragon Wallis (Panelist), and Deb Brehmer (Contributor), Simone DeSousa (Contributor )
