The Hartnett Gallery, located in Wilson Commons on the University of Rochester's River Campus, is presenting the work of artist Shawn Dunwoody illustrating the African-American experience in America.

The exhibit reveals the stereotypes that minorities confront in America. Dunwoody integrates religious symbols, icons, and artifacts to powerfully illustrate the African-American experience with the many institutions in this country. Dunwoody describes his work as presenting "harsh and straightforward visuals that challenge the viewer to examine the self-inflicted negative stereotypes that are attributed to the indoctrination of the experience of slavery."

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The show will run from Tuesday, Jan. 18, through Sunday, Feb. 6. The exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Black Student Union.
