Unity: Community, Family, and the Future
As part of the ongoing Nevada Humanities Exhibition Series, a new exhibition, Unity: Community, Family, and the Future, opens at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery on June 2, 2022, and will be on display online at nevadahumanities.org.
Unity: Community, Family, and the Future is an exhibition of images and poetry created by innovative thinkers throughout Nevada to shine a light on the need to come together as a community made up of diverse people, cultures, and identities. Unity is a concept that has long shaped our national story as an integral part of our shared traditions and a hallmark of our many cultures. This exhibition examines unity as a concept that helps us build a shared future for our families, communities, and nation despite our many differences.
Unity: Community, Family, and the Future will feature the following artists: Ben Aleck, Janine Heidi Barlese, Montana Black, Antoinette Cavanaugh, Fawn Douglas, Shan Michael Evans, Jack Malotte, and Joseph Watson. The following poets will also be featured: Angela M. Brommel, Caroline Dufferena, Linda Dufferena, Harry Fagel, Shaun T. Griffin, Rodney Lee, and Elizabeth Quiñones-Zaldaña.
This exhibition is a part of Nevada Humanities’ A More Perfect Union initiative, where Nevada Humanities has been asking at public programs across Nevada, “What does it take to build and belong to a more perfect union?” This initiative fosters an appreciation for the connections between the humanities, our community stories, and a commitment to understanding the founding of the country in all its complexities.
“What makes a nation? What makes a place where people come together to share in the work of forging a future for themselves and their families into a community? I hope that this exhibition provides an opportunity and inspiration for people to reflect on these questions and be reminded that we all need to depend on each other despite our differences. This reflection is at the heart of this exhibition,” said Bobbie Ann Howell, Nevada Humanities Program Manager.
The exhibition will be open to the public for viewing by appointment only Tuesday – Thursday from 1 – 4 pm and until 9 pm PDT the first Friday of the month at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, 1017 South 1st Street, #190 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In-person viewing will close on July 27, 2022.
An exhibition reception will take place at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery in Las Vegas on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, from 5 to 8 pm PDT with monitored entry to accommodate social distancing.
Shared reflections inspired by the exhibition may be viewed at nevadahumanities.org.
