Colors of Culture Gallery
Colors of Culture’s vision is to highlight student artwork and promote inclusivity through monthly themes. Located in the Brave Space of Diversity Initiatives & Resource Centers (DIRC), Colors of Culture reflects the community values of community inclusiveness, critical learning environment, cultural humility, and community ownership. Each month, we strive to create conversations around artwork that excites critical inquiry, growth, openness to new ideas and learning experiences. We hope to inspire humility, respect, and sensitivity to other cultures in thoughts and actions. And finally, through art, we hope to create a welcoming environment for all.
We invite you to take time to immerse and reflect on the artwork. Through this gallery space, we hope you gain a new sense of self, understanding of others, and acceptance of all. Check out our current and past shows.
Returning Fall 2020
April 6 - 30, 2020 - Virtual Show on Instagram @CSUFDIRC
APIDA Amplified is a student art show that celebrates Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month. Through creative endeavors, we are calling artists to highlight and amplify voices of their communities. The show is a celebration of heritage, experiences, and diversity within the large APIDA umbrella. It is also an opportunity to challenge socially constructed narratives around the APIDA experiences. We are inviting contributors to use art as the medium to make visible APIDA identities and issues, and to their own narratives - amplified.
