Common Ground: Art at Bissell 2016

Jeiva, Sierra Nallo, Will Mars


Common Ground explores topics as diverse as homelessness, gender, and diaspora, drawing on each artist’s unique experience of—and relationship to—the theme of displacement. All artworks have been produced by emerging artists affiliated with community-engaged organizations. Through their photographs, paintings, mixed-media collages, and one mural, artists demonstrate that the creative process can foster a common sense of belonging in a foreign place—in other words, that art can be their common ground.
