This is America exhibit opening reception January 31
An opening reception for the exhibit This is America will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, January 31, in the Rachel Cooper Gallery on University Street.
The exhibit is the result of a faculty-student collaboration with Professor of Graphic Design Archana Shekara and students in Design Streak and the advanced honors seminar Innovation and Inquiry for Presidential Scholars.
The project examines stereotypes and the marginalization of minority communities living in the U.S., said Shekara. “We need to acknowledge our biases and act in solidarity towards social change. The exhibit invites the audience to reflect on current issues and join the conversation by recording their thoughts on the comment card which will be included in future shows.”
The show will run in the Rachel Cooper Gallery until May 3. It is sponsored by the School of Art, Honors Program, and the Women and Gender Studies Program.
