The Ethnic and Gender Studies Institute and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at Siena Heights University are pleased to announce an upcoming special event: on Monday, October 24 at 7p.m., Laura Earle will present an artist talk followed by a Q&A session about the exhibit “Unraveling Racism: Seeing White.” The artist talk will take place in Rueckert Auditorium.

This is an interdisciplinary, collaborative exhibition curated by Laura Earle that zeroes in on racial disparity in America. It features the works of 17 dynamic artists who turned the lens around to examine whiteness in America. Gathering regularly to uncover the true impact of whiteness in this country, the artists discussed their findings in depth, developing artwork while in conversation with each other.

The exhibit is already on display at the INAI Gallery inside the Weber Center on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters and will be available until Sunday, November 13. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, or by appointment. In addition, part of the exhibit will be on display at Siena’s Klemm Gallery.
