Center for Social Concerns opens 2024 Arts of Dignity student exhibit

Author: Center for Social Concerns

The Center for Social Concerns opened its 2024 Arts of Dignity Student Art Exhibit on January 22 with an awards presentation and reception in Geddes Hall.

The exhibit’s opening coincided with Notre Dame’s Walk the Walk Week, an annual series of events designed to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s fight for racial justice and to inspire us as we continue to push for a more just society.

Art plays an important role at the Center for Social Concerns.

The arts provide a concrete encounter with people and communities marginalized by injustice as they help us to imagine a more just world. They also facilitate new collaborations, engage a range of faculty and students, and are useful pedagogical tools within the classroom.

In their Arts of Dignity submissions, students explored related themes such as diversity, civil rights, and economic fairness. The works, solicited from undergrads and graduate students at Notre Dame as well as Saint Mary’s College, Holy Cross College, and Indiana University South Bend, will remain on display in Geddes Hall until the end of the spring semester.
