Art Encounters: Ally is a Verb addresses allyship, solidarity, and community building from multiple perspectives; an interactive station encourages members of the campus and external communities to respond to the works on view by sharing their own stories, adding to a collective oral history archive that reflects diverse voices and experiences. This exhibition dialogues with Rollins College’s Common Read theme of allyship. Each piece individually, and the selection as a group, addresses allyship, solidarity, and community building from multiple perspectives.
