Between the Stripes, Under the Stars is an exhibition by ten women artists–the majority of whom are immigrants from Asia, the Middle East and Africa–attempting to answer the question, who is an American? This is the second exhibition by these artists, who explore identity within the context of multiculturalism, language, upbringing, gender and the legacy of colonialism. Using a variety of media and methods, these artists present a range of viewpoints and experiences contained in contemporary American identity.

Virtual Artist Discussion:
Wednesday, December 7, 6:30pm CST.
Please RSVP here by Sunday, December 4.
A Zoom link will be emailed to participants in advance of the event.
