Refuge Gallery

The Refuge Gallery serves as a venue for exhibitions of artistic work relating to humanitarian and social justice issues. Using art as a means to illuminate, educate and provoke, the Refuge Gallery seeks to bring the Fordham community closer to the injustices experienced by our fellow global citizens.

Our vision is to create a stimulating environment encouraging of cultural and artistic inquiry through a social justice lens for our students, neighbors, artists, and the humanitarian sector — not only at the Institute but at Fordham University as a whole. Please visit the IIHAs Refuge Gallery website to learn more about Chester and view his work from Intimacy of Prayer

Special thanks to our Curatorial Fellow, Joel De Andrade, for putting on this show and Noel Bernard, Graphic Design Coordinator for creating
