2018 Race & Pedagogy National Conference: Library Exhibits

Art Exhibits in Collins Library during the 2018 Race & Pedagogy National Conference

Zine and Heard: Narratives of Resistance and Liberation and Drop-In Zine Making Workshops:  A display of zines that are part of the permanent collection of the Collins Library will be on display in the lower level of the Library outside the Makerspace.  All conference participants are welcome to stop by the Makerspace to make their own zine and buttons that reflect the themes of this year’s Conference.  Students will be on hand to provide assistance and we will have an abundance of materials to inspire personal artistic creations!

Speaking Out: Twenty-One of Tacoma’s Social Justice and Civil Rights Champions:  Courtesy of the Tacoma Historical Society, this banner exhibit describes and honors Tacoma’s unsung heroes who have worked for Social Justice and Civil Rights.  Prominently displayed in the entrance to the Collins Library, these banners serve as a complement to the Civil Rights Walk that has been organized as part of the Conference.

I Am Psyched:  Located in the Library’s Learning Commons, I am Psyched!  is a multimedia initiative that explores the history and contemporary contributions of women of color in psychology as they engage in psychological science, practice and social justice.  Also included, will be a selection of books from our collection that complement the exhibit.

The Art of Clarissa Sligh:  Clarissa Sligh is a nationally recognized artist whose work associated with the Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate project will be on display.  Sligh took white supremacist books and used the pages to create objects of hope and peace.  Her origami cranes are inspiring and a source of beauty and contemplation.  Located in the front gallery of the Collins Library.

Migration Now:  A limited-edition portfolio of thirty-seven handmade prints, addressing migrant issues, from Justseeds & CultureStrike will be on display, alongside the work of Sligh, in the front gallery room.
