  • The Unity Flag Project
    08-19-2020 | Lobby in the Leu Center for the Visual Arts

    In the summer of 2020, creatives from all over the United States of America were invited to create a Unity Flag in order to promote empathy for bipartisanship in a time of political unrest. These flags represent a unification of our nation’s community coming together through the process of artmaking in a holistic and positive manner. Led by Assistant Professor Dr. Meaghan Brady Nelson, the Unity Flag Project provides artists with an opportunity to engage in constructive civil discourse, prompting unity and celebration amidst the 2020 Presidential Debate. 

    This exhibition ends November 20, 2020.
