The selection, "Undocumented: A Dominican Boy’s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League," by Dr. Dan-El Padilla Peralta connects well with the theme!
Many events and projects shared through the WSU Art Department this year have tie-ins to the topics identity and global community.
Be sure to look for photography events in the calendar that connect with the theme and also check out student, faculty, and visiting artist exhibits in the Watkins Gallery blog.
On Sept. 11, the WSU University Theme, with support from a Sustainability grant from the WSU Student Green Fees and the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, sponsored a virtual presentation by renowned ocean photographer Christian Vizl.
Vizl's work, with it's black and white “Vizl style”, highlights the beauty of the ocean world while emphasizing the importance of environmental conservation efforts.
