“The umbrella symbolizes the canopy of the heavens, shelter, and protection. It is often recognized in art as an emblem of power and dignity; the shape of a circle, a sacred symbol for life.

 With this exhibit, I hope to create an atmosphere of reverence, a place where people can experience the space under the umbrellas to reflect on the images that honor and celebrate racial diversity while creating conversations and connections between peoples.”  – Mary Therese
