The Mudd Center for Ethics and Staniar Gallery are coordinating a community art project to invite W&L students, staff, and faculty to personally engage with the Daily Ethics theme. The Daily Ethics Mosaic will be created through a series of Fall term workshops led by Richmond-based artist Jonathan Lee. Two-hour workshops will involve individual and collective art-making and will culminate in a large-scale community artwork on display in Wilson Hall. No artistic savvy or experience is necessary. Contact Karla Murdock or Clover Archer with questions.
2021-2022: Daily Ethics: How Individual Choices and Habits Express Our Values and Shape Our World
We have shared a year in which rhythms of our daily lives were deconstructed. What has this experience helped us to understand about our values and priorities? What new perspectives has the past year offered regarding the kind of world we want to live in? How will we use these insights to craft our lives, moving forward?
The Mudd Center for Ethics is embracing this liminal moment to present a program about intentions and practices that comprise a meaningful life. How should we make sense of and carry out our responsibilities to ourselves, each other, ideals, society, and our world, now and in the future? How should we actualize our values on an individual scale - the decisions we encounter as we move through our days - and on a collective scale - actions that address systemic injustices, maximize health and well-being across the globe, and sustain resources to serve future generations? This series will prompt introspection and discussion about personal morality and agency: how our daily lives manifest who and how we strive to be in our days and in our lives.
