We the People
February 25, 2022
The meaning of the American identity has been fraught with distorted symbolism and meaning. The exhibition explores notions of citizenship, with the recognition that the term “We the People” has been politically hijacked in recent years. The collection of artworks featured frame a critique of racist and nativist ideas of what it means to be American by presenting inclusive, and diverse perspectives that are both deeply personal as well informative to the broader collective identity.
