Adele H. Stamp Student Union - Center for Campus Life

Black Legacies

Hunter Jones (Class of 2020) designed a mural that depicts Black and queer leaders at UMD, including Elaine J. Coates, David Driskell, Miss Toto (Rock Evans), and N. K. Jemisin. Ericka Njeumi (Class of 2020) documented the creation of the mural in a time-lapse video and behind-the-scenes footage.


Drag artist and activist Miss Toto (Class of 2014) contributed a video performance. The goal of this project is to show appreciation for those who made UMD a better place for Black and queer people, presenting them with art on campus that celebrates and reflects them.

Mission Statement

The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
