Cape Fear Community College will present an art exhibition, I Have a Name, opening Friday, January 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.
The I Have a Name exhibition was inspired by community interest in exposing human trafficking and its root causes, and in preventing trafficking from continuing, through education and community engagement. Both visual and performing artists were asked to make a statement through their art that might evoke the feelings a victim might have, illuminate the plight of those who have no control over their circumstances, symbolize modern day slavery, and offer hope for eradication and prevention.
More than twenty student, faculty, and community visual and performing artists will be featured at the event.
The I Have a Name exhibition is part of a series of events sponsored by the Not4$ale initiative at CFCC. The next event is a film screening and discussion to be held in March 2014.
The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery is located at 200 Hanover Street in downtown Wilmington. The I Have a Name exhibition will be on display through February 7, 2014. For gallery hours and updates, visit http://cfcc.edu/blogs/wilmagallery/.
