Come celebrate the culmination of a year-long collaboration to highlight the diverse populations of the Central Coast!
Join Kennedy Library and Dr. Grace Yeh for the May 23 reception for “Objects of Affection” exhibit. The exhibit draws upon the personal papers of families featured in the Re/Collecting Project, an online archive and ethnic studies memory project featuring families of California’s Central Coast, and directed by Grace Yeh, associate professor of ethnic studies at Cal Poly. Through stories, photographs, letters, songs, and performances, “Objects of Affection” explores the intimate lives of those within our diverse community. The exhibit shows the powerful ways people can forge rich community bonds and friendships in response to social and legal exclusion.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours starting May 12 until June 6, 2014.
