The Center for Language Studies is happy to introduce its Virtual Art Exhibit.
This entirely online exhibit will feature a variety of pieces created by members of the Brown community and will focus on several themes devoted to language, culture, justice, and multilingualism around the globe. We aim to open a creative portal that will amplify voices and visualize experiences of language and culture, and hope to foster a multimodal and multilingual dialog through the perspectives of individuals that make up our Brown community.We aim to open a creative portal that will amplify voices and visualize experiences of language and culture, and hope to foster a multimodal and multilingual dialog through the perspectives of individuals that make up our Brown community.
