This exhibition utilizes the visual arts to unmask how society reflects values, ideas and beliefs concerning social challenges which inspire contemporary visual artworks seen at this site from both professional artists and student artists.
"Stories are how we organize our thoughts and experiences and how we share them with others. Community developers and teachers can work with public artists to help students tell their stories: art can act to build solidarity/alliances and can be a prelude to community action." Hustedde, R. J., 1998, "On the soul of community development", Journal of the Community Development Society Journal, 29:2, pp. 153-165.
There will be a community and students' reception from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 2, at Fletcher Library, to highlight the community partner artworks of the art students from South Mountain High School Magnet Arts Program.
