FREE ADMISSION on May 8thToe Fo’i:The Return is a community exhibit in collaboration with 5 Pasifika artists engaging the power of storytelling to humanize the numbers behind those lost to COVID-19.

The exhibit builds upon a series of story-circles, which reminds visitors that the stories of those lost are the stories of those who survived. Toe Foʻi: The Return is anchored to the role of artists as healers who move us collectively through this hurdle of misinformation, fear, mistrust, and entitlement.

This exhibit, Toe Fo’i:The Return is generously supported by the Robert Gumbiner Foundation and Empowering Pacific Islander Communities(EPIC), a national organization that advances social justice. The exhibit will close August 21, 2021.
