Allegheny College’s 2010-2011 annual theme is “Global Citizenship,” but there is no agreement about what constitutes a “global citizen.” In this exhibition we propose that diasporic peoples, whatever the reason for leaving their homelands, are as close as one gets to finding a “global citizen.” Featuring works in a variety of mediums by Bonnie Donohue, Rebecca Heyl, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Vasia Markides, and Susanne Slavick.
