The Joan Weldon Gallery space will feature “Western Hemisphericals” a rotating curated invitational exhibit that will feature artist renditions and interpretations of who and what is a “Western Hemispherical”. Is identity based on geographical environment as opposed to racial origin? For example, the people who have come to inhabit the southwestern part of the United States may have more in common through geography, including a mostly arid climate and the flora and the fauna that come with it, than they are racially different.
