HERE Now: Art Inspired by the Immigrant Experience
On View February 15 through April 5, 2019
This exhibition will highlight nine artists that are local, regional, and from as far away Florida and Massachusetts. Their work engages the deeper meanings of transcultural migration to the United States. It is an exciting opportunity for a diverse and accessible conversation on US immigration through the artistic lens of those who have settled and now call the US home. The exhibition is curated by the Arts Council of Lake Oswego from community-sourced submissions bringing together personal narratives from a wide range of backgrounds. Art is a powerful vehicle for understanding and community building, and this will be an engaging space to learn more about our friends and neighbors.
“At ACLO, we have the exciting opportunity to engage viewers in multiple points of view through meaningful artwork that can aid in examining and understanding social issues - that’s exactly what we hope to achieve with this exhibition,” remarks Stephanie Johnson, Arts Council of Lake Oswego’s Program and Public Art Manager.
