Ohio State Faculty and Staff Celebrate Diversity through Art

Faculty and staff showcased their artistic talents on Friday, April 22, for more than 50 Ohio State faculty, staff, students and Columbus community members who gathered to celebrate diversity and advocate for social justice through artistic expression.

Hosted on the Columbus campus by the College of Education and Human Ecology’s (EHE) Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the 2nd Annual “An Evening of Music, Poetry, Spoken Word and Art” celebrated National Poetry Month.

The event featured the following Ohio State faculty and staff who shared their creative contributions:

  • Elaine Richardson, professor, who sang an original song
  • Ryann Randall, assistant to the director of the EHE Office of Diversity and Inclusion, who contributed an original painting
  • Timothy San Pedro, assistant professor, who performed an original spoken word piece

“We believe this event creates a forum for people to artistically express their ideas and viewpoints, share their feelings and engage in conversations,” said Dr. Valerie Kinloch, director of the EHE Office of Diversity and Inclusion and professor and associate chair of the Department of Teaching and Learning.

The EHE Office of Diversity and Inclusion develops, promotes and supports dynamic programming to encourage critical thinking about diversity, equity and inclusion—key areas of President Drake’s 2020 Vision for Ohio State.

Below are photos from the event. Learn more about the EHE Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
