The Spring 2021 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibitions Marking Monuments and Still Here: The Griffith J. Davis Photographs and Archives in Context. Exploring the groundbreaking photography of diplomat and photojournalist Griffith J. Davis, and the thematically complementary multimedia works of contemporary artists, teachers and students are invited to examine how art can be a medium of protest and resistance. Lessons are aligned with curricular and instructional standards of state and national learned bodies in social studies and art education. 

Marking Monuments and Still Here: The Griffith J. Davis Photographs and Archives in Context InsideART lessons are written by USF College of Education faculty Dr. Bárbara C. Cruz, Professor of Social Science Education and Dr. Cheryl Ellerbrock, Associate Professor of Middle Grades and General Secondary Education; Shannon Peck-Bartle, M.A. and Cristina M. Viera, M.A. & M.Ed., Doctoral Students in the USF College of Education; and Miranda Ferguson, graduate student in the USF College of Education. The program is co-directed by Dr. Cruz and Noel Smith, Deputy Director, USFCAM.
