Rochele Royster September 7 2022

Rochele Royster, assistant professor of art therapy in the Department of Creative Arts Therapy, is exhibiting work in the group show “Once Upon a Time… A Toy Show / Erase una vez… un show de juguetes” at Syracuse University’s La Casita, with an opening on Friday, Sept. 16, from 6-8 p.m.

Presented  in commemoration of Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15), the show will include work by Latin American and U.S. artists inspired by dolls and toys as the gallery transforms into an interactive playground.

Royster’s installation “Dolls4Peace” will be featured. This installation was a collaborative art action by students, teachers, and community members of various Chicago neighborhoods to bring attention to the impact of gun violence.
