“Intersections of Identity” is the theme of this year’s Labyrinth, the annual art journal published by the AS Resource and Outreach Program’s Women’s Center.  This journal explores the ways in which race, gender, class and sexual orientation create a person’s identity, Alex Niedziolkowski, Labyrinth coordinator, said.

The Women’s Center accepted submissions from anyone, regardless of gender, and the journal includes art, poetry, short stories, prose and photography.

Labyrinth is an opportunity for people to highlight their artistic endeavors, Niedziolkowski said.  It’s also an opportunity for people to get published and have their work shown in a gallery.
The Gallery will be displaying some of the artistic submissions included in Labyrinth.  According to Niedziolkowski, the Gallery will feature art submissions in the form of sculpture, film, photography and paintings.  The Labyrinth exhibit will be in the VU Gallery from April 5 to April 23.  The VU Gallery is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The opening reception will be April 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. and will feature readings of some of the written pieces in Labyrinth.

“Art has an amazing ability to make us reflect upon ourselves and the world around us,” Niedziolkowski said.  “Some of the pieces are really moving.”
