U.S. Department of Education – Total Tolerance: Select Works by 2018 YoungArts Winners in Design, Photography, Visual Arts and Writing
May 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Celebrate the opening of Total Tolerance: YoungArts Exhibition Opening
The works on view—created by 2018 YoungArts winners in design, photography, visual arts and writing—celebrate religious, cultural, gender and racial diversity. Whether the artists are creating work that is directly rooted in their own lived experiences or sharing their personal views on issues of inequality and social justice, they are united in rejecting narratives of intolerance.
With a deliberate and critical eye, we find these artists questioning existing systems and prescribed outlooks through their practices. Total Tolerance evokes a process through which representation and dialogue can take shape to call for alternative, inclusive perspectives on the very real issues of the day.
Featuring: A spoken word performance by TiKa Wallace
Remarks: Evan Plummer, Senior Director of Education, National YoungArts Foundation and Jason Botel, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education, U.S. Department of Education
