Our commitment to interdisciplinary research goes beyond the bounds of the printed and spoken word. The Center has begun curating art exhibits to encourage more engagement with the arts in exploring how we can address the pressing issues of our time.

Lonely No More Exhibit

In the Spring 2022 semester, the Center for 21st Century Studies (C21) hosted a series of events for Lonely No More!: The making and unmaking of loneliness, isolation, and connectedness. A story-collecting survey circulated across social media from January to February 2022 jump-started the symposium. The survey results went on to inspire this exhibition. Featuring seventeen pieces by local, national, and international artists, Lonely No More! is a meditation on the ways loneliness and connectedness can be expressed through visual art, audio, and poetry.
