Perspectives: The 2 Americas mural
Join us for a facilitated discussion of the “2 Americas” mural, installed on the ceiling of the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies in Hale Library. The mural is a modern-day response to the “We Are the Dream” mural, which was painted in 1980 by various multicultural student groups in the original location of the Dow Center on the fourth floor of Hale Library. “2 Americas” is a collection of work from photographers Luke Townsend and 400 North Creative-Doug Barrett, which amplifies the Manhattan area voices and those enrolled at Kansas State University during the protests of civil unrest in 2020.
Led by Nate McClendon, Museum Specialist at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, participants will engage in collaborative dialogue based on personal reflections to the mural.
