Artists express who they are through their art. We focus on the connection between art and identity.

The spirit of innovation is woven through contemporary Native American Art at the 'Cross Currents' exhibit, on display at the Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State University of Denver.

'Jews Who Rock' is a unique exhibit exploring the 60+ year influence of Jews in rock and roll music, both on stage and behind the scenes. 

Brazzdance choreographer Augusto Soledade uses contrasting movements to narrate a Afro-Brazilian folktale.  And in a different creative piece, Soledade reflects on marginalization and social tension.
