The Sum of Unity



“The Sum of Unity,” curated by artist and Herron alumnus Samuel Levi Jones, is a composite exhibition in response to the divisive climate in which we all find ourselves.

The main thrust of the exhibition will be protest signs – an art form that is often overlooked – created by more than 50 Indiana- and Chicago-based artists, including Herron students, faculty and staff. As an auxiliary part of The Sum of Unity, Indianapolis artists Shamira Wilson and Clayton Hamilton have been asked to create new large-scale murals that will be seen alongside the 2018 animated video by Kota Ezawa, National Anthem.

Supported in part by Stuart’s Moving and Storage, Indianapolis, “The Sum of Unity” will remain on display in the Berkshire, Reese and Paul Galleries until April 17.
