Trust is a pillar of human society so deeply ingrained that we almost forget how much we need it. The ID: An Exploration of Trust art show is here to remind us.
ID is a pop-up art show that presents student-made art themed around ideas of identity. The exhibit will showcase a variety of art, all on the theme of trust, Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the North Carolina Study Center.
“As humans, we are incapable of living without trust,” said Anne Howard, a senior who is helping plan the event. “I trust the chair I’m sitting in, and I trust my friends to love me.”
Howard said that trust was chosen for this year’s theme because of how abstract yet relatable the value is. Through the theme, the independent, student-run art show aims to create conversation and introspection about what trust truly is.
Emma Biggerstaff and Maggie Blank began the pop-up art show as senior art students at UNC in the fall of 2015. The first ID art show explored identity and change, and the second show in 2016 featured the theme “coming home.” This year’s show is sure to be equally moving.
