breathe: A Global Portrait
This exhibit is meant to inspire us to think of ourselves as part of a global family, in which we each, through our customs and cultures, bring to the table a distinct and integral presence.
breathe is a collection of over thirty images made around the world by WKU photojournalism students, staff, and faculty, brought together by the Academic Advising & Retention Center as a study in portraiture on a global scale. Countries represented in this exhibit include China, France, Grande Comore, Guatemala, Italy, Jordan, Mongolia, Morroco, Netherlands, Scotland, Sudan, Uganda, United States of America, and Vietnam.
breathe: Woven Voices
Historically, weaving is one of the oldest forms of human adaptation and expression; from tapestries in antiquity to the intricate woven rugs of today, weaving continues to inspire. The many different techniques and fiber varieties allow for a wide range of artistic expression. What was once used as a tool for basic human necessity, such as clothing, now has evolved into beautifully expressive artworks reflecting individualism.
It is our intention that this exhibit will demonstrate to our visitors the unique perspective, form of expression, and individual aesthetics of our students.
