See Your Neighbor: Diversity in the Arts

Published October 9, 2020

621 Gallery  is proud to present “See Your Neighbor: Diversity in the Arts,” an exhibition made possible with a grant from the President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion, that acknowledges the importance of diversity and inclusion through art. 621 Gallery is providing a virtual exhibition space as a platform for individuals to highlight personal experiences, uncover systemic issues, and most importantly gain greater awareness, compassion and empathy related to the full spectrum of humanity.

Members of the Tallahassee public were asked to submit work to touch on one or more of the following topics relative to the subject of diversity: race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status or physical disability.

Our goal is to create a virtual space that exposes the positive impact of inclusion when diversity has been acknowledged, understood, and welcomed. In conjunction with the online exhibition, 621 Gallery will be hosting a forum to expand upon themes from the exhibition, outline a path for improvement, and encourage community engagement.
