Exhibition in Tower Fine Arts Building humanizes the tragedies of civil war and genocide with portraits taken by refugee youth.

The Survivors Exhibit (Open now through mid-April).

Now installed in the West Side Gallery (2nd Floor) in Tower Fine Arts,

Open 9 am - 4 pm,

This exhibit was created by refugee youth (Uwiringiy’imana and Ngabo) to facilitate their processes of healing and reconciliation in the aftermath of a massacre in their refugee camp. It creates a space to acknowledge how genocide is not a thing of the past and to raise awareness of why refugees exist. Portraits of massacre survivors, who moved to western New York, humanize the tragedies of a distant civil wars and highlight our local diversity.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, the Drake Memorial Library and the Department of History with support from the Department of Art, and generous funding from the Promoting Excellence in Diversity Grant.
