Quilting Differences: Queens Diversity Art Project
Queens University of Charlotte Students & Artist Edwin Gil Bring Diversity to Life
Edwin Gil, a local artist from Colombia, South America present a specially designed Quilting Differences art piece to students, faculty and guests at the Queens University of Charlotte's Coffee Hour. The piece was designed in conjunction with Queens students in a workshop presented by Edwin Gil in September. In addition to bringing their concept of diversity to life with paint, students were interviewed and asked how they defined diversity and inclusiveness. As part of Coffee Hour, the videos will be played along with short presentations from Edwin Gil and Bill Means, Director of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion.

"His Quilting Differences project was a great way for students to learn more about each other through art. Instead of a lecture, the students connected with each other, had the opportunity to reflect on what diversity meant to them through multimedia dimensions and produce an enduring art piece for Queens."
