In order to move forward Americans need to stop dancing around the conversation on race relations. We need to finally discuss with one another in order to try to reconcile with the complexities of our multicultural world. United is an exhibition of pendants of racial slurs, ethnic slurs, sexual orientation and gender pronouns. The art relies on audience participation and conversation, the viewer will be able to wear a pendant of their choice. Selfies to post on social media are encouraged so the conversation can spread out beyond the Akron community. Is there a slur out there that you wanna take back?
