The Center for Diversity & Intercultural Affairs is presenting “Diversity through Art” on Tuesday, Feb. 11 from 5-7 p.m. in Lowman Student Center room 241. The event will give Sam Houston State University students a chance to express their perspective on diversity.
The “Diversity through Art” program was a program proposal created and approved by the Diversity Council. The Diversity Council is an eight-student programming board that is charged with diversity programming for the institution.
“The program is a hands-on painting experience of their choice of art that represents diversity,” Coordinator of the Center for Diversity & Intercultural Affairs Edwin Cantu said. “There is a potential partnership with an art organization, but the details are currently still being figured out.”
Each member on the Diversity Council has the opportunity to develop and chair a program. The chair of this event is Marketing Director of the Diversity Council Tiana Hale.
While all the details for the upcoming program are still being sorted out, Cantu said he hopes that this program will let students get to express what diversity means to them while getting a chance to meet new people.
“All students are welcome to come and participate in the painting,” Cantu said. “It is our hope that through the experience of painting their art pieces that students get to engage with the theme of their artwork deeply and enrich their understanding of diversity.”
