It is known across the United States for its green spaces, fresh air, good public transportation, and great places to run and bike. The people of Eugene embrace diverse beliefs and abilities, which provides a friendly and welcoming environment where students feel they belong.

January 27–June 14

Every year, the JSMA partners with the University of Oregon’s Common Reading—campuswide programming around a shared book and its themes—to organize a Common Seeing exhibition that explores and expands on the Common Reading through visual art. The 2020-21 novel is This is My America by UO Assistant Vice Provost for Advising, Kimberly Johnson. The Common Reading’s charge of Listen. Learn. Act. incorporates different bodies of work across multiple platforms, focusing on Blackness, Black experience, and dismantling racism. The works on view in this year’s Common Seeing, on loan from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer, are by Black American artists Hank Willis Thomas (American, b. 1976) and Alison Saar (American, b. 1956). Their art compels us to look, listen, learn, and act.

The JSMA believes that art can move people to change. As an academic art museum, it is critical for us to listen, learn, and act in order to build trust and understanding. We are committed to the advancement of anti-racism in museum culture and diverse and equitable approaches in our work. The JSMA’s exhibitions and public programs strive to amplify multiple perspectives, experiences, and voices. LOOK. Listen. Learn. Act. is generously made possible by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.

Ugo Akabike is a University of Oregon Alum often thinking about being in a place where the sand is warm, the sky is cerulean blue, and the waves are barreling. Through his photographic endeavors he strives to capture the moments that we often think little of, but remember fondly in reflection. Though often choosing to say little with words, the images he produces announce themselves boldly through their captivating visual nature. The photographs displayed in Fond Reminiscence attempt to make its viewers pause and appreciate the subtle links between memory and imagery, both while observing the images on display and while interacting with the world in daily life. 

Ugo would love to hear from you and what you think about his work! He challenges you to reach out to him on Instagram right now just to say hello : ).
