WE SEE THROUGH HATE
The vision for this public art project is to transform our “main street” spaces into literal windows of understanding; spaces in which the community can learn about the positive strides being made by local organizations around a wide array of social justice issues that don’t make daily headlines. Windows of Understanding is a creative, community-building response to the negativity and hate being perpetuated in today’s media landscape. Our belief is that through visual language, artists can communicate methods of understanding in powerful ways that cut across cultural boundaries.
In this second iteration of the project, over 30 non-profit organizations were paired with an artist facilitator to create an original work of art that answers the question: “How do we see through hate?”. The works will be on display at venues throughout New Brunswick and Highland Park, NJ from January 21- February 28, 2019.
Programming such as walking tours, “Tables of Understanding” events at local restaurants, poetry readings, performances, educational workshops, and film screenings complement the visual displays throughout the run.
