Stop by one of three Pop-Up Sessions to learn more about the Building Bridges art exhibit and initiative! At the event, you can meet participants and organizers of Building Bridges, pick up a card so you may contribute to Building Bridges, or simply view the artwork—created by students, faculty, and staff from across campus—on display.

Pop-Up Sessions will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 22 (Campus Center Concourse), March 29 (Design Building), and April 5 (Hampshire Dining Commons).

The Building Bridges art installation invites individuals to answer the questions: “What differences do you want to bridge and/or connect, and how can we accomplish this goal?” Responses are written or drawn on cards that prompt reflection and creative expression on the theme of building bridges across difference. Once completed, the cards are collected and assembled as a mosaic on one of three art installations on campus.
