The public is invited to the exhibit “Sharing Our Journey:Women of Color Engaging Our Worlds, An Exhibit of Visual Media, Stories & Other Work from Students, Staff, Faculty, and Alumni” which opens on Friday, February 6, at 6:30 p.m. with a reception in the Hampshire College Art Gallery. The exhibit will remain in the gallery until Tuesday, February 24.
Work presented will reflect individuals’ personal journeys with identity, and the show itself seeks to examine the ways individuals with specific cultural backgrounds and life experiences are seeing and understanding the world around them.
This exhibit is part of a larger program, “Academics, Activism, Art, and Ascendancy: Women of Color who Change the World,” organized by the Hampshire College Board of Trustees to celebrate Florence Ladd for her service to Hampshire and to higher education in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.
