Who We Are  brings together figural and abstract works by modern and contemporary artists that explore music and religion, peronal and cultural history, and beauty rituals and perceptions of the body.  While each work represents the artist's individual response to these aspects of personal identity, the universality of these ideas permits viewers of any cultural background to relate the works to their own life experiences. 
 

Curated by Susanna W. Gold with her graduate students Heather L. Castro, Natalie E. Jackson, and
Rachel F. Kirchgasler in conjuntion with the Fall 2009 "Race and Gender in African American Art" seminar.
