411 Gallery festivities celebrate community

October 06, 2010

The ASU Downtown Phoenix campus will open its doors to the community for the “Visions and Pathways toward Social Justice and Human Rights” 411 Gallery exhibition from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Nov. 5. The event will take place at the University Center at 411 N. Central Avenue in Phoenix.

The exhibition will showcase local nonprofits that are engaging in social justice and human rights issues such as health, education, labor, human, community and economic development, refugee rights, gender, and leisure. The exhibition shares stories, increases nonprofit mission visibility, and provides opportunities to connect and take action.

The “For Our Eyes” art exhibition shares timely stories through the artwork of community and university organizations, artists and members. More than 20 nonprofit groups are taking part, including the Cultural Arts Coalition, PSA Art Awakenings, GLSEN/Anti-Defamation League, Worker’s Rights Center, Advocates for Latin@ Arts and Culture, Release the Fear, Tumbleweed, Lodestar Day Resource Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Student s for Social Justice in Palestine, International Rescue Committee, the Lincoln Family YMCA and many more.  

“For Our Eyes” is grounded in ASU’s College of Public Programs’ commitment to the social and economic advancement of the diverse communities in the metropolitan region. The College is a center of intellectual and cultural engagement, within the vibrant urban core of the City of Phoenix, with knowledge at its foundation. From the design of the campus throughout the heart of downtown, to the proximity of hundreds of community organizations, “For Our Eyes” Exhibitions offers an unparalleled opportunity to make a difference by directly connecting with the people it serves. The “411 Gallery” is free and open during ASU building hours.

The exhibit is part of “First Friday” and will be conveniently located across the street from the Civic Space Park Collaboration’s “First Friday” November event. The Civic Space Park will be filled with performances, live art demonstrations, and Dia de los Muertos festivities.

The 411 Gallery promotes the use of Artlink shuttle stops. There is a stop located at the Artlink A.E. England Gallery in the Civic Space Park.
