Del Ray Artisans Presents Expanding the Common Ground: Voices of the Global Majority

By Editorial Team on September 27, 2021
Connected Worlds by Beth Richardson.
Opening: Friday, October 1 between 12pm and 9pm

The Expanding the Common Ground: Voices of the Global Majority art exhibit explores what makes us one, seeks the common ground among us, and examines what it means to heal the divides. The world has been designed by institutions, and terms like people of color or minorities serve to divide us and create white vs. non-white or us vs. them paradigms. Local artists and high school students present artworks examining all facets of our diversity and celebrating our unity.

Tickets are available for half-hour viewings on opening day: Friday, October 1 between 12-9pm. Opening day tickets are not required, but ticket holders have priority entry. Find tickets at expanding-common-ground.eventbrite.com

Gallery hours:

  • Thursday: 12-6pm
  • Friday: 12-9pm
  • Saturday: 12-6pm
  • Sunday: 12-6pm (closed the last Sunday of the month).
