Sixteen Americans of multi-cultural backgrounds present their interpretations on the concept of America and its icons. Viewed by the conscientious observer, the works in this exhibition reveal themes zealously debated among friends but rarely spoken among strangers: economic disparities; cultural segregation; senseless slayings; religious extremism; and civil rights abuse, are among such subjects. Through this exhibition, the artists hope to open the opportunity for diplomatic dialogue.
Featured artists: Aidah Aliyah Rasheed, Ann Williams, Bruce McNeil, Calvin Coleman, Christina Batipps, Cynthia Farrell Johnson, Desiree Sterbini, Halide Salam, Helen Zughaid, Jeffery Kent, Maya Freelon Asante, Megan Hildebrandt, Rebecca Waring, Susan Brandt, Ulysses Marshall, & K. Wesley E. Clark.
Additional programming presented in conjunction with the exhibition include:
- Artists panel discussion, January 17, 1 – 3 PM
- “The Price of Racial Reconciliation,” book signing and discussion with author Ronald Walters, PhD; Saturday, January 24, 1 – 3 PM
