Art @ the Center: Unique As We Are Alike

September 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Unique As We Are Alike is a multidimensional exploration of contemporary Lumbee identity that focuses on the experiences of Lumbees defining themselves and their commonalities despite years of being defined by others. This process, through symbolism and portraiture, creates a feeling of connectedness, compassion, and empathy, which showcases the uniqueness of Lumbee identity while underscoring certain commonalities of the human condition.

Join us for the opening reception

Spend the evening with us on Friday, September 14, at 5:30 pm for the opening of Unique As We Are Alike. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. Light snacks and drinks will be served. Both artists will be present. The evening will showcase another dimension of Lumbee excellence as well, as we celebrate the publication of The Lumbee Indians: An American Struggle, by our director, Dr. Malinda Maynor Lowery, who will be reading excerpts from her new book.

This exhibit will remain on display through December 12, 2018.

Parking is free after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot, approximately two blocks from the Center.

Special thanks to our co-sponsors, UNC’s American Indian Center, Department of HistoryDepartment of American Studies, Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Department of Art & Art History, and UNC Press.
