Since 2016, the Autry has presented exhibitions of student artwork around a compelling theme. In 2021 and 2022, we presented these exhibitions online. This year, we return to in person exhibitions.

About the Theme: Visions of Solidarity
We often hear stories about how divided we are: West Coast versus East Coast, North versus South, blue state versus red state, pro-this versus anti-that. When we look closer—at the community level—we see that solidarity abounds.
One definition of solidarity is “the mutual support within a group,” another is “a fellowship stemming from shared values and goals.” However you define it, you will find solidarity across the American West—in the past as well as the present. Solidarity has supported migrations, political movements, cultural revolutions, industries, fashion movements, and so much more.
We call on the students of the American West to share with us their visions of solidarity. What does solidarity look like to you? How do you support others through solidarity and how are you supported in return? We look forward to seeing your visions and sharing them at the Autry.
