“My Story” is a nationwide juried show inside of two galleries, both devoted to the celebration of diversity. The first gallery will be located inside of Washington State University Vancouver Dengerink Administration Gallery, the other located at Nouspace Gallery and Media Lounge. The Dengerink Administration Gallery will be used for all paintings, sculptures, photos and analog art. Nouspace Gallery and Media Lounge will feature all electronic and digital art.
“My Story”’s call for art encouraged individuals to share their story of diversity whether a struggle or inspirational message. Due to the fact there are two separate gallery spaces individuals are able to choose whichever medium they prefer in order to best convey their message. This exhibition is held on behalf of the Diversity Council at Washington State University Vancouver. “My Story” is meant to bring awareness of diversity and broaden our horizons to our nations view of diversity. The purpose of a nation call allows for a curated group of artists and art that will encompass the wide variety of diversity in religion, culture, ethnicity, disability, sex, race, age, gender, sexual orientation/identity and more.
About the Diversity Council at Washington State University of Vancouver
A major task of the Diversity Council is to provide organizational and financial support for events and activities that promote diversity on the WSUV campus. This includes:
- Encouraging the development of research and curriculum on diversity issues by our faculty and students.
- Supporting programs that help prepare and recruit students from under-represented communities to attend WSU Vancouver.
- Sponsoring cultural and academic events that help create an intellectual and social environment that celebrates diversity on our campus.
Our goal is to exhibit a collection of aesthetic representations of diverse applications of diversity, all while following tasks set by the Diversity Council by WSUV.
