Drawn from Sheldon’s collection, Intersecting Identities offers a selection of artworks that present the complexities of lived experience. Created by or depicting people of color, these works engage in a dialogue on how race intersects with other facets of identity—such as ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and social class.
