I Write Your Name: The Amistad Center @ USJ

Part II: June 26 - August 31

I Write Your Name will be exhibited at the Art Gallery in three installments during 2014 while The Amistad Center's galleries at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art are closed for renovation.

All three installments feature selections from the Amistad Center's collection of art, artifacts, and popular culture objects that "document the experience, expressions, and history of people of African descent." They were chosen to highlight some of the Center's recent acquisitions. I Write Your Name also supports the School of Humanities and Social Sciences' 2014-15 academic year theme of "Peace."
