This exhibition presents the final projects of students in Documenting Inequality, a course that emerged out of the University of Illinois’ Campus Conversation on Undergraduate Education initiative to pilot Grand Challenge Learning tracks on the topics of Sustainability, Energy, and the Environment; Health and Wellness; and Social Inequality and Cultural Understanding.

Taught by faculty in Art + Design—Ryan Griffis, Associate Professor of New Media, and Terri Weissman, Associate Professor of Art History—the class examines how documentary and community-based art addresses economic and social inequality among children and young people in the U.S. Emphasis is placed on how art can enhance our understanding of lived and historical experiences of inequality beyond the limits of journalistic or scholarly accounts that inform our day to day understanding.
