Embracing Differences is a nonprofit that engages metro Atlanta in a dialogue about ending prejudice and discrimination. The organization uses art to educate and promote a community where all people share a mutual respect for others without prejudice, hate or fear.

Their signature project "Students Draw The Line…Against Prejudice" was created to serve as a powerful weapon to help fight the battle against intolerance. Students from metro-wide elementary, middle and high schools created more than 50 entries for this year's contest.

The opening event, dedicated to students, their family members and art teachers is November 1st from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM at The Arts Exchange Paul Robeson Theatre and Mama Nanji Youth Xchange Gallery , 750 Kalb St. SE, Atlanta GA 30312. The event features:

This year, an added feature includes a "PEOPLE'S CHOICE" Vote on the artwork. You can see all the entries and vote by Liking the Embracing Differences Facebook Page. Then, From November 2nd through November 14th the Judged Winning Entries will be featured in an outdoor exhibit at The Arts Exchange. The 9 banners will feature 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners from elementary, middle and high schools.

The Xchange Gallery at The Arts Exchange presents Mike Jensen's installation of light, sculpture, and photographic works in a solo exhibit titled "Structural Geometry". The exhibit is a result of Jensen's examination on how even the largest and most complicated things built can be broken down into the simplest forms. 

A native of Huntsville Alabama, Mike Jensen has lived in Atlanta since 1984. He received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1987, and began work as a gallery assistant. In 1989 Jensen became an Art-handler at the High Museum of Art. He left the High Museum in 1997 and became self employed as an art installer and photographer. Currently he works for a variety of galleries, museums, and artists, installing and photographing complex installations. 
Alongside his professional career, Mike Jensen has consistently created bodies of his own artwork that span a variety of subjects and mediums, primarily through the use of photography. "Structural Geometry" is a reflection of his interest in architecture and areas of mathematics, including fractals, Euclidian geometry, and patterns that arise out of chaos.
