#WeAreIllinois art exhibition to be featured at Asian American Cultural Center

Posted: Updated:

URBANA – The Asian American Cultural Center will be featuring #WeAreIllinois, an art exhibition that was inspired by the “Humans of New York” website, throughout the month of March.

#WeAreIllinois is a social media initiative from the Intercultural Horizons Internship program comprised of collections of photographs and quotes of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students. The #WeAreIllinois exhibition seeks to tell unique and personalized stories of the students through photography and journalism.

The art exhibition is meant to celebrate the University’s diversity, which officials say is what it stands for. Officials also hope the exhibit will find common ground and experience between students and promote cross-cultural understanding and appreciation across various ethnic, racial groups on campus.

Victoria Prince, Boyi Guo, Qianyu Cheng and Shannon Kelly were the interns responsible for the initiative in the Spring 2016 semester.

#WeAreIllinois can be seen Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM, until April 1, 2016 at the Asian American Cultural Center, located at 1210 West Nevada Street in Urbana. A reception will take place on Thursday, March 3 from 6 PM to 7 PM.
