"Objects of Affection" Exhibit @ Robert E. Kennedy Library, 2nd floor

The “Objects of Affection” exhibit draws upon the personal papers of families featured in the Re/Collecting Project, an online archive and ethnic studies memory project featuring  families of California’s Central Coast, and directed by Grace Yeh, associate professor of ethnic studies at Cal Poly. Through stories, photographs, letters, songs, and performances, “Objects of Affection” explores the intimate lives of those within our diverse community. The exhibit shows the powerful ways people can forge rich community bonds and friendships in response to social and legal exclusion.
