Darnell Chambers, who in 2012 earned a Bachelor of Science in Web Design & Interactive Media from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, was recently part of a panel discussion. “Art Beat – Examining the Outside” focused on marginalized groups that could be seen as outsiders in American society and how art and the media reinforce or refute these opinions.

The event took place at Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, Pennsylvania and was held in conjunction with the exhibit, “Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th-century American Art.” The subjects of some of the narrative paintings and sculpture are people who were outsiders in their time.

Panelists included Caitlin Bruce, an expert on graffiti and muralism who teaches at the University of Pittsburgh, and Dawn Weleski from Conflict Kitchen, a restaurant that serves cuisine from countries in conflict with the United States. The event was moderated by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist Tony Norman.
