Vi Nguyen (she/her) is a Saigon-born, Houston-raised, Washington, D.C.-based visual artist and arts educator who seeks to dismantle and disrupt the singular narrative of war's history, particularly, the wars in Vietnam. She is drawn to notions of memory, identity, and intergenerational trauma within the Vietnamese diaspora.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Science in Multimedia, Photography, and Design from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Her background in cognitive and behavioral psychology shapes and informs her visual literacy. Her ongoing project “Heart Size is Normal. Lung Fields are Clear,” is a personal undertaking into the collective notion and narrative of war’s memory and the lingering residue of trauma on identity.

THE NORTH DAKOTA SPACE GRANT CONSORTIUM COLLECTION
NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, also known as Space Grant, in 1989. This national network of colleges and universities works to expand opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research, and public engagement efforts.
The North Dakota NASA Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) was established in February of 1991. The North Dakota NASA Space Grant Consortium fulfills the Space Grant mission by involving North Dakota faculty, students, and K‐12 teachers and students in multi‐institutional, collaborative, NASA‐relevant research and education projects, while also educating the North Dakota citizenry about NASA, its purpose, and its missions.
The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium has a collection of printed posters, photos, and art available to the public. Pieces can be collected at the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium office (Clifford Hall, Room 270) on the UND campus.
