Voice To Vision Art Exhibition
Many survivors of genocidal violence in the past century have harrowing memories and give powerful testimonies of an unquenchable will to survive. Voice to Vision, a collaboration between artists and survivors from places such as Nazi Germany, Cambodia, Rwanda, and Tibet, captures and communicates the victims' experiences through works of visual art.
In addition to President Kelley, speakers will include Art and Design Department Chair Art Jones and former genocide prosecutor and Associate Professor of Law Gregory S. Gordon. A short film will be shown and the Gallery will remain open after the reception. Dessert and refreshments will be served.
"The Center is honored that President Kelley has agreed to take part in this event," said Gordon, who is also Director of CHRGS. "This exhibition uniquely presents the incredible stories of those who have survived some of the most tragic and evil events of the last century, and represents an incredible opportunity to share these stories with the Grand Forks community."
All events are free and open to the public. Sponsors include the Office of the President and O' for Heaven's Cakes N' More.
