Mohammed Murshed, graduated from the University of Oregon in spring '18 with a Bachelor of Art in Art & Technology; he is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Studies at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland. Murshed's work will be on view in the Adell McMillan Gallery Fall '18. Artist's statement: "When I begin a project, I already envision the concept of the idea in my mind, I do not force anything into my work. Some of my artwork reflects on my diagnoses of PTSD due to the war in Yemen and synesthesia. Ancient Middle Eastern Art inspires this Collection for Summer 2018. This series is devoted to Professor Jan Reaves (RIP 1945-2018); she was my Mentor through my last two years in University and has inspired me to work harder and not to give up. The impact of my cultural heritage reflects on my artwork. It subconsciously comes out to me; I consider myself a global citizen I would like my work to touch everyone globally."

Millions of families gather together every year to celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. Many Americans do not grow up thinking much of the history behind the holiday. The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe. In collaboration with the Native American Student Association (NASU), we will focus on ways in which we can continue to show gratitude while raising our critical consciousness and identifying ways to decolonize the holiday.
