LEARN: Community Dialogue Through Art


Peace of My Mind is a multimedia art project that encourages public conversation about issues such as conflict resolution, civic responsibility, and peace.  Through the photos and stories of a diverse group of individuals we are encouraged to celebrate our common experiences and create a sense of community.  This traveling exhibit is currently at University of Minnesota Crookston and will be open to the public through August 29, 2016.  The exhibition will culminate with a keynote address by the photographer, John Noltner, along with a discussion on Monday, August 29 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in Bede Ballroom, Sargeant Student Center.  The public is invited to attend and parking will be free during that time.  Lorna Hollowell, director of the U of M Crookston's Office of Diversity and Multicultural Programs, the exhibit, keynote address, and discussion will kick-off a year of programming designed to foster a campus and local community of peace.  To learn more about A Peace of My Mind visit their website at https://apomm.net.
