Cuesta students still have a chance to experience the touring art exhibition: â€œOrganize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movementsâ€ at the Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery.
The exhibit features numerous works from artists and poets responding to racial movements throughout American history.
â€œIt is a show [students] need to see and spend time withâ€¦it is important for people to be aware of the power of activism,â€ said Emma Saperstein, gallery coordinator.
The exhibition, which got its start in Philadelphia and Chicago in 2016, showcases advocacy efforts to end racism in suburban communities â€” where most racism occurs, according to the exhibition founders.
The exhibit located in building 7170, is open for public viewing Monday through Friday from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. and first and third Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. during exhibitions.
The â€œOrganize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movementsâ€ will be open until Feb. 16.
