This exhibition is broken into three segments that explore various universal themes of human perceptions, feelings, and thoughts irrespective of our own perceived uniqueness. Devoid of our own social constructs and stripped to our core, the exhibition explores the ways we are connected to one another.

The first segment is a selection of mixed-media artworks consisting of photos, paint, and words. These various mediums are incorporated together to play and act as filters for one another, pointing to how our inner perceptions filter our surroundings.

The second segment is a collection of street photography taken in Pakistan. These images depict various aspects of life that capture moments that flow within all of us. Seemingly everyday urban scenery opens a window on to a more universal human connection.

The third segment is an assortment of images depicting walls and markings. Walls are like open canvasses layered with information, emotion, and expression, which explain the strengths and weaknesses of our communities. As with their physical counterparts, our inner walls can become obstacles to deeper connection. But walls can be re-purposed. And, perhaps more beautifully, we have the ability to scale walls, or even tear them down and begin anew.

Shaun Ilahi currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska, and is general counsel at Habitat for Humanity of Omaha.

This exhibit is free and open to the public daily from 7:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.
