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.
