“See Them, See Us” part II is on display through March in the Townsend East Hallway of the College of Education.
The “See Them, See Us” series is a series of paintings calling attention to the plight of the
“immigrant” or “refugee”. Working from images of immigrants from different periods in American History and World History, the loosely painted figures are existing together, from both past and contemporary immigrant movements in the same composition. Additionally, the images are on mirrors, engaging the viewer and making them complicit in these narratives.
Join visual artist Alyssa Liles-Amponsah, Associate Director of K-12 Programming & Education Equity in the Office of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity as she explains the See Them, See Us series and her other work focusing on issues of identity and history in American culture.
