2021 Smail Gallery Exhibition Opening: Resilience—Looking Towards a Post-Pandemic Future and the Ephemeral Moments Throughout
Resilience draws on student visions of resilience in action over the last two years. In this extended gallery curation, we asked students: What’s different now, as we start to imagine a post-pandemic future? What does resilience mean now? In this combined exhibit, images of joy, perseverance, and inspiration found in 2021 will join the images of pain, rage and hope from the historic spring and summer of 2020—all through the eyes of 27 Macalester students scattered across the country throughout the past two years. The exhibition runs through August 31, 2022, in the Smail Gallery on the second floor of Olin-Rice.
