Curated by Keri Watson, UCF Assistant Professor of Art History, this exhibition presented photographs, quilts, paintings, films, and installations that responded to the Pulse Nightclub shooting and exemplified themes of remembrance, resilience, and resistance. Featuring work by students, faculty, staff, and community members, the exhibition celebrated the lives of the victims, engaged with social and political issues, and demonstrated the power of love to triumph over hate. The exhibition opened June 8 at the UCF Art Gallery with a public reception from 4-6 p.m. as part of UCF’s Day of Remembrance. The exhibition was on display at the UCF Art Gallery June 8 – June 30, 2017.
The exhibit is made possible by the Citizen Curator Project and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
