I Am More Than Who You See

June 30, 2021 to October 10, 2021

I Am More Than Who You See was created by Lisa Abia-Smith, director of education and Senior Instructor faculty for PPPM, and is inspired by Cephas Williams' 56 Black Men campaignThese museum education programs and exhibitions center around a series of annual workshops held for UO students focusing on identity and misrepresentation.

This year’s project was led and curated by photographers Malik Lovette (Class of 2018) and UO art student Kayla Lockwood. The exhibition documents multiple community conversations with UO students, primarily students of color, and documents their experiences surrounding stereotyping. The project team represented each participants’ authentic view of their identity with the critical and reflective dispositions that accompany their personal development.
