Know Your Rights for Photography; Defending the First Amendment in Public Space

Shanna Merola is a visual artist, photojournalist and legal worker. In addition to her studio practice, she has been a human rights observer during political uprisings across the country - from the struggle for water rights in Detroit and Flint, Michigan, to the frontlines of Ferguson, MO and Standing Rock, ND. Her collages and constructed landscapes are informed by these events. Merola lives in Detroit, MI where she facilitates Know-Your-Rights workshops and coordinates legal support for grassroots organizations through the National Lawyers Guild. She is the 2019 - 2020 Interim Artist-in-Residence in the Photography Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
