The DePaul Museum of Art and DePaul University Library have partnered to create research guides to accompany DPAM exhibitions. This guide serves as a starting point for conducting research about the artists, works of art, and context of items in the exhibition.
Key themes of this exhibition include race and racism, identity and heritage, Dominican and Haitian politics, gender, body image and beauty.
