Exhibit: August 3rd

Below is the announcement for our exhibit next week. Do come if you are able. We'll post photos on our facebook page for those who can't make it.

Please join us for an exhibition of collaborative works between Lewis & Clark students and students at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba. In March of this year, 11 Lewis & Clark undergraduate students from eight different majors and all four class years traveled to Havana in order to establish a cultural exchange with Cuban artists and art students. The project was funded by the Center for Career and Community Engagement, the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark, and the Dean of Students’ office. It was advised by associate professor of History, Elliott Young. Works in the exhibit were conceived in March, and developed over the resulting months. As collaborations the works express consensus in spite of differences in culture and perspective.

The exhibition opens Friday, August 3rd at 6:00 PM in the Eric and Ronna Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art. It will remain open through August 10th between the hours of 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
The Hoffman Gallery is located on the Lewis and Clark Campus
