Threads of Commonality Exhibit

Exhibit
Second Floor Exhibit Hall

“Threads of Commonality”
The experience of displacement is not unique to refugees. We all experience moments of being out-of-place. What are the barriers that prevent us from a sense of belonging? What does it look like to triumph over these barriers? The goal with this exhibit is to create threads of commonalities - through a wide variety of personal perspectives which depict the sense of feeling at home wherever and whoever we are.

Featured Artists: Maxwell Koepke, Frank Anello, Carmen Melton, Lynn Burnes, Tiffinny Branson, Cris Cardenas, Kiyasha Newson, Knyaw Paw.
