Program Description

Event Details

Borders can act as cultural unifiers, allowing for groups to build community around shared experiences and values. They can also separate us in catastrophic ways by perpetuating and fortifying socially constructed divisions between class, politics, accessibility, race, and gender. How do we build community across all forms of these perceived boundaries? This exciting exhibit showcases the many ways that artists have explored themes of hope, healing and inclusivity across global borders. Through sculpture, painting, textiles and installation, artists have sought to eliminate boundaries as they foster community and broaden understanding.
