This exhibit is a collection of black and white photographs by Robert E. Gerhardt Jr. of New York City. He states that his goal for this project is to try to understand and document the intersection between "Muslim" and "American," since the latter part of this community’s identity is often forgotten. He began photographing for this project on the first night of Ramadan in 2010, and continues to make photographs through the present day. His hope is that this photo series can encourage a dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims in America that attempts to erase the boundaries that engender a sense of "them" and begin to foster a sense of "us."
The exhibit opens in the St. Charles Hall Art Gallery on September 15 and will run through October 1. The gallery is open from 9am to 9pm weekdays and is closed weekends and college holidays.
Free and open to the public.
