Re-Birth - Art Installation by Sheila Pree Bright

The BU Arts Initiative and Boston University Libraries are pleased to present a the commissioned work "Re-Birth" by Sheila Pree Bright in the Boston University Mugar Memorial Library. Timed to coincide with the 2020 presidential election, the installation addresses themes of equity and access; particularly concepts related to the democratic process, voting rights, institutional change, racism, and equitable representation, in keeping with the pedagogical mission of Boston University Libraries. This installation was conceptualized through conversations with BU community and research within the BU Libraries collections, and consists of oversized photographic prints of young women from Pree Bright’s 2008 series "Young Americans" overlaid with video projection of text taken from archival research and Boston University student interviews. Boston University community members, cleared to be on campus, can view the installation in person. The general public can engage with virtual elements of the installation at
