Visual Literacy Today is an online magazine first founded in 2017 by Kristen Harrison, publisher at The Curved House. It is now co-run with Dana Statton Thompson, a librarian and academic at Murray State University, US.
What began as a general interest website about visual literacy has grown, largely thanks to the initatives of Dana Statton Thompson, into a go-to resource for academics, artists, educators and practitioners all around the world.
Carnegie Whitney Grant
Co-editor of Visual Literacy Today, Dana Statton Thompson, was awarded the Carnegie Whitney Grant, supporting the addition of an extensive bibliography of visual literacy.
In 2019, Dana was awarded a Carnegie Whitney Grant from the American Library Association to create Recommended Reads for Visual Literacy, an extensive bibliography of articles, books, and archival materials that seeks to serve as a detailed web resource for visual literacy.
In 2020, with generous support from the International Visual Literacy Association, we added another new feature: a Teacher Resource section enabling visual literacy experts around the world to share their VL teaching materials.
We look forward to further partnerships that can support wider dissemination of the ideas, resources and research generated by the global Visual Literacy community.
