Building Bridges Exhibit

Beginning November 1st, The Class of 1945 Library will host a traveling exhibition Building Bridges: Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees, a photo-text display created by the award-winning Family Diversity Projects of Amherst, Massachusetts. The exhibit created by Mark Chester, Gigi Kaeser, and Peggy Gillespie features photographs and interviews with people who have come to the United States as immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers from all over the world. The exhibit seeks to challenge damaging myths and stereotypes about immigrants and refugees as a way to prevent bullying and hatred towards this marginalized group of people.

The exhibit will be on display November 1 – December 14th on the ground floor of the Library Commons.
