About this event

How is bicultural identity expressed through portraiture? Through portraits from the "One Life: Maya Lin exhibition" as well as select works from the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, we will meet bicultural individuals who tell their stories through the lens of two cultures. By examining their portraits, we will glimpse how one's identity can be reconciled, forged and defined while gaining some insight into the experiences of our bicultural students.
