ART EXHIBIT: PROJECT 2065
Artist Joanna Hallstrom
January 12-February 2, 2020
Sponsored by Interfaith Ministries
A portrait reflects the likeness of an individual at a certain time, and in a particular moment. This collection of portraits represents the likeness of a future moment, a significant shift in the portrait of our nation. Each of the portraits within this collection are of Minnesota students who will be part of this change. According to Pew Research Center projections in 2065 the USA will become fifty-four percent People of Color.
“We are a changing nation and our faces are changing. My motivation for this portrait study is to offer a small, hopeful glimpse into our future and to show who we will be in 46 years—honoring those who have traveled far, worked hard and endured much to allow the next generation to stand on their shoulders and lead, teach and guide us,” said Hallstrom.
Come and spend time in this profound gallery filled with 16 oil portraits of MN students who will be living this change. The exhibit is presented with a soundscape of student voices. Field trips to Christian churches that worship differently from WCC are planned.
Join us in between services on January 19th to meet the artist and to hear about what inspired her to create this amazing exhibit.
