"Displacement" art exhibitions displayed in San Marco Gallery

The art exhibit “Displacement,” which is part of Dominican’s Democracy and Equity Initiative, opened in the San Marco Gallery September 15 in Alemany Library.

The works of Vic De La Rosa, Azucena Hernandez, Fred Hoerr, Oree Originol, and Joel Daniel Phillips explore themes of displacement -- those pushed out from the center of our societies, by forces of violence, economics, racism, or different circumstance. Through these portraits, the humanity of those considered “other” is emphasized. Important contemporary issues such as gentrification, police brutality, and homelessness are explored.

The new exhibition, one of several events on campus focused on a central theme of Democracy and Equity, was on display during normal library business hours through October 28.
