Duderstadt Center Gallery, University of Michigan North Campus
2281 Bonisteel Blvd., Ann Arbor, MI 48109

American Artists of African, Arab, European, Asian, Latino, and Native American descent explore their heritage in this vivid and diverse exhibition using a wide variety of media. The artists examine patriotism, communication, the struggle for acceptance, what it truly means to be an American in the 21st century and more. Humor, heartache, anger, apprehension — All emotions are evoked by these works, raising questions about race, class, gender, and age. Four main themes run through Infinite Mirror: Self-selection, Pride, Assimilation, and Protest, providing audiences with the opportunity to re-examine both the story and the storytellers of the quintessential “American dream.”

Infinite Mirror is developed by Artrain, Inc. and Brandywine Workshop, Philadelphia, PA, and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC. Presented with support from the Institute for Museum & Library Services, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs.
