January 21–March 13, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 21, 4:30–7:00 pm
Coordinating with the 2015 UConn Reads theme, “Race in America,” a group of University of Connecticut students in the School of Fine Arts employed typography, color, and motion to visually communicate personal experiences with race—limiting themselves to only six words. This digital exhibition of moving text aims to initiate a dialogue around the current state of race relations on campus and make visible those issues that are frequently pushed below the surface.
Graphic design students from the department of Art & Art History—Stephen Bogdan, Nicole McDonald, Raeanne Nuzzo, Jose Ortiz, Brigid Reale, Sarah Williams, and Samantha Weiss—curated and designed the exhibition. Artwork for the exhibition is by students in the department of Digital Media & Design and the department of Art & Art History.
