With the annual Stories Seldom Told exhibition, student-artists collaboratively create multidisciplinary art installations exploring a social issue they feel isn't being addressed in their everyday lives. Students vote on their topic and use art as an avenue to present data, historical information as well as their own personal reflections and solutions. In the past, youth-artists have tackled topics including mental health, educational inequities, and violence in the media.
This year, SAY Sí artists are exploring the expectations of youth across generations. Artists are examining the values, pressures, and social issues that formed each generation and asking critical questions about the differences and parallels of youth across modern generations. Starting with curiosity around what “Ok, Boomer” really meant, this show aims to deepen intergenerational empathy and connect what we all experience when we are young people in the world.
