RAPID CITY (AP) - The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will be hosting an art exhibit showcasing the work of a Palestinian comic artist.

The exhibit with the work of Leila Abdelrazaq opens Wednesday at the Apex Gallery on the campus of the Rapid City college.

Abdelrazaq says her comics engage issues such as immigration, diaspora and tradition to show that the "Palestinian struggle" is one "that is inherently relatable to people from many walks of life." She says comic art can help break down concepts that are difficult to understand and make them accessible to people.

The school says the exhibit is one of many scheduled events to mark Diversity Awareness Month.

"Baddawi: Identities in Transit" runs through April 29.
