Exhibit Details

The "Investigating Identity" exhibit was held at Witherill Library from March 21st, 2022 - May 1st, 2022. Its mission was to encourage the students, faculty, and staff of Cazenovia College to explore their unique identity through art. This exhibit sought to explore the role that identity plays in our lives, how it shapes our perceptions of the world, and how it influences the way we interact with each other.
