Exhibits and events on Jan. 14
The “I’m Tired” Project
In December, more than 600 students at Rombout Middle School participated in workshops organized by the I’m Tired Project, a social justice movement using art as a tool on social media to inspire dialogue around daily experiences of prejudice. Students were asked to write their own statement on their hands to be photographed.
The photos will be on view at the Center for Creative Education at 464 Main St., with an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, visit theimtiredproject.com.
