WHO ARE YOU?
Eliza Wilson Thomas
This exhibit is an exploration of identity, including its genesis, its relative permanence, and its performance. Is it something that comes from within? Is it imposed on one through social interactions? Is it adopted over time? What is the nature of this key element of how we understand and express ourselves. Specifically, artists were asked:
How is your identity informed by your ethnicity, who you love, your gender, your political or religious beliefs, the culture that resonates within you? How has your identity changed over the years? In what ways has your identity shaped or changed your life? Does the world see and accept you for who you are?
We hope art will help give voice to that which defines identity for a given person.. It can be very personal, or it can highlight a person or a cause that is about the concept.
“What We Bring to the Table” by Eliza Wilson Thomas is included in this exhibit.
