At The Table, is inspired by Western Carolina University's 2023-24 campus theme of Community and Belongingness and ties in with recent conversations in our community about the importance of having one’s voice heard and being given a seat at the table. The works in the exhibition, which feature the recurring motif of the table, both literal and metaphorical, use this common piece of furniture to signify a place where people come together in connection, endure and overcome injustice, and make decisions that can change an individual life or the course of humanity.
