About this Exhibition

They Have Names is an exhibition of artwork by students, faculty, staff and alumni of MassArt, Roxbury Community College and School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibit illuminates lives altered or cut short by spiritual and physical violence as more than statistical entires or political sound bites and recognizes each life as unique, myriad and priceless. How do we honor these lives and experiences through the voices of art and artists? How do we honor these lives by how we conduct our own? This show aims to spark conversation and explore the costs of this violence to our culture and our community.
