Sometimes to really get the impact of a story across, you’ve got to put a face on it. Feeling the truth of this axiom, in 2016 the civil liberties and human rights-focused Sikh Coalition partnered with acclaimed U.K. photographer duo Amit and Naroop to found The Sikh Project. This eclectic portraiture portfolio has continued to grow, presenting engaging and expressive photographs in storytelling empowered to spark a positive, optimistic and inspirational discourse regarding the Sikh experience in America. A new installation of the project opens this week at the Museum of Tolerance, celebrated with a reception and panel discussion. All are welcome.

Museum of Tolerance, 9786 W. Pico Blvd., Pico-Roberson; opening reception: Sun., Sept. 15, 4-6 p.m.; exhibition: through Nov. 3; free.
