”The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
excerpt from "The Hill We Climb" by Amanda Gorman, Youth Poet Laureate
Amanda Gorman’s poem, President Biden’s and Vice President Harris’s speeches invited us to move forward together to complete the hard work of re-imagining our nation as a place of hope and dreams once again. The difficulties still exist but we are appearing to be both incredibly adaptive and remarkably resilient. Hopefully, by communicating and working in ways that encourage collaboration, inclusion, diversity and innovation, we will survive and grow.
Throughout time, it has always been the artists who hold up the mirror to our humanity and reflect the world not only as it is, but as it could be. With this thought, we encourage you to participate in “Adelante Juntos” – an exhibition of works looking at where we have been, where we are, and where we are collectively going.
