Brigham Young University Museum of Art (MOA) has entered the conversation on refugees. According to MOA Curator Kenneth Hartvigsen this decision wasn’t accidental or spontaneous. Two years ago the museum staff, including Hartvigsen, started looking for shows and exhibitions that dealt with refugees. The fruit of their efforts are the three exhibitions currently on display through Sept 29: “DIGNITY: Tribes in Transition,” “Refugee Trilogy” and “Albanian Stories.” Hartvigsen hopes these exhibitions will inspire patrons to act and make a difference in their communities.
