Art Exhibit: Painting, Poetry, and Sculpture

GAPP and ACRU welcome

Dr. Joan Ferrante and NKU students with Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories (MCRC) for An Art Exhibit: Painting, Poetry, and Sculpture

Tuesday, September 12, 7:00 PM

Location: Anderson Hills Church, 7515 Beechmont Ave. 45255

This exhibit includes poetry, discussion and 10 sculptures created by MCRC artist Monica Naymar. The group of sculptures artistically addresses how each of the racial categories we use today to identify ourselves were born out of a signature trauma – a trauma that the category carries today – and responses each category had made to find some relief.

This art and poetry event will explore key questions that inform MCRC’s work:

  • How have our relationships and families been broken apart into distinctly different racial categories?
  • How does the U.S. manage to get people to sign on to be a race?

Acknowledging this sorrow can help us begin the process of ‘undividing’ on an individual, community, and national level.
