FRCC Students ‘Reconstruct Past’ of Women’s Experiences with Workplace Discrimination

Front Range Community College students in art, history, and women’s study classes learned the stories of women living in Boulder County who have stories to tell about workplace discrimination or harassment and turned those #metoo stories into a multimedia exhibition opening April 20 on the Boulder County Campus and May 3 at The Firehouse Art Center in Longmont.

The students worked under the direction of Todd Volz, art; Mary Ann Grim, history; and Catlyn Keenan, women’s studies, to produce this collaborative, interdisciplinary service-learning project called Reconstructing the Past.

Students worked across disciplines to contribute to the installation. The women’s studies and women’s history students wrote oral histories of the interviews – portions of these histories will be selected for inclusion with the art installations. Ceramics students are creating pieces based on the interviews as well.

The exhibit will be on display from 5 to 7 p.m. April 20 in the Community Room of the Boulder County Campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont, and from 6 to 8 p.m. May 3 at the Firehouse Art Center, 666 Fourth Ave., Longmont. Admission is free to both events. Students and the interview subjects who participated are invited to attend the exhibitions.
