Mini-Art Installations Exhibit, Fall 2017

The ADED 22275: Issues and Trends in Social Studies Education Mini-Art Installations Exhibit was held during finals week, December 2017, in the Moulton Hall Ballroom. The Mini-Art Installation is the culminating project for ADED 22275 and requires the imagining, creation, and refinement of 3 to 6 original art pieces as well as an artist statement. These art pieces and artist statements engage the social justice issue students selected, and reflect their developing ideas of justice-oriented citizenship and activism.
