Art Exhibit runs September 28 to December 10, 2021

Over a year and a half into the pandemic, community spaces have been impacted. To bridge the gap between the adversities caused by COVID-19, the many ongoing forms of systematic oppressions, and the human experience, the MultiCultural Center is hosting a student exhibition that emphasizes QTBIPOC experiences. 

This exhibition seeks to  highlight and give voice to marginalized experiences as we navigate a pandemic and collectively pave the way to envision and create a new future that holistically centers community, belonging, and social justice art.
