You oughta’ be in pictures! In conjunction with the Diversity Lecture Series and/or Diversity Week programs, Multicultural Affairs periodically hosts a special exhibit in the University Center Gallery.

Imagine a day where we are not judged by the color of our skin, our gender, or our sexual orientation. Inspired by the Hindus "Holi" festival, the artists this artists created the exhibit to celebrate the unity of cultures, genders, and sexual orientation in a place where we aren't labels, but a community united in color. In India, a caste system exists which defines and restricts society status at birth. "Holi" is a day when this belief is cast aside and everyone is seen as equals. The artists wanted to use this "equality" tradition from another culture and merge it with their own modern photographic representation of equality.
