This collection showcases interaction between humans and how power, whether it be social or political, can have a ripple effect on those within a society. Dictators, such as Raúl Castro and Kim Jong-Un, along with Cedar Valley residents from across the globe, including a Wartburg graduate, have their histories and stories displayed in a mixed media style.

Buehler serves as the Hawkeye Community College arts and culture coordinator. Bates is currently an assistant professor of fine and applied arts at Hawkeye. 

Exhibits are composed of work from local, national and international artists. The gallery is free and open to the public 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. All visitors must adhere to campus COVID-19 policies, such as wearing a mask while indoors and maintaining a safe physical distance from others.
