CONCORDIA ART EXHIBITION A COLLABORATION OF
ARTISTS AND GENOCIDE SURVIVORS
Concordia College’s first art exhibition of the academic year, “Voice to Vision,” begins Sunday, Aug. 26, and runs through Sunday, Sept. 16, in the Cyrus M. Running Gallery. A public reception will be from 4-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in the gallery and exhibit curator David Feinberg will speak at 4:30 p.m. in Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre. The exhibition occurs in conjunction with the Faith, Reason and World Affairs Symposium.
“Voice to Vision,” curated by Feinberg, a professor in the art department at the University of Minnesota, features 29 artworks that have been created through collaboration by a team of artists and genocide survivors. The goal of the project is to use the visual arts to forge a genuine connection between the audience and the genocide survivors and their experiences so that the lessons of genocide are forever kept alive.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. For more information call the Art Department at (218) 299-4623.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
