Wall gallery, Level 2 of Lutnick Library
Photographs by Jack Weinstein '23. This exhibit tells the story of the creation and destruction of Black Lives Matter murals in Uptown Minneapolis in the summer of 2020. During the protests that followed George Floyd's murder, many businesses were boarded up, and activists as well as businesses painted murals on the plywood boards memorializing George Floyd and other victims of police brutality and celebrating the Black Lives Matter movement. The photographs in this exhibit were taken throughout that summer as murals went up and then began to be taken down. In accordance with COVID-19 protocols, Lutnick Library is closed to the public during the fall semester with the exception of public lecture times.

Rebecca & Rick White Gallery, Lutnick Library
Curated by Nick Lasinsky '23, this exhibit looks at four moments from the past: the English Civil Wars from 1640 to 1660; the French and Hatian Revolutions of the late eighteenth century; the Yellow Fever epidemic that struck Philadelphia in 1793; and one man’s perspective on the Vietnam War from 1960 to 1973. This exhibit demonstrates the power of story, rumor, and rhetoric when it seems as though the world is falling apart around us.
