Community Open House: Being and Belong Art Exhibition
October 23, 2021 at 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
The FedEx Global Education Center will be open to the general public for viewing of the art exhibition Being and Belonging on Oct. 23, 2021.
Special events include a self-guided tour, a scavenger hunt and a raffle. Free parking is available under the FedEx Global Education Center.
Being and Belonging brings together artists of Latin American heritage from across the state of North Carolina whose work evokes questions of identity, environment, and home. With over 25 works of art that range in theme, medium and tone, Being and Belonging celebrates the diversity of experiences while also reflecting the realities of a complex, multicultural Southern United States. Each artist’s distinctive voice is animated by a web of global influences. The artists draw inspiration from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico. The exhibition harnesses the vast story-telling potential of visual art through a range of mediums, including print, paint and ceramics.
