Our reading event with writer Alisha Laramee HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
This event is part of our current exhibit Migration.
Date: Thursday, November 1st, 2012
On view through November 25, 2012
Through the perspective of international and national artists
and writers, Migration addresses topics of immigration, emigration, migrant workers, New Americans (refugees), and visa holders. These personal narratives describe physical and cultural dislocation and assimilation, the act of moving,
and migration's socio-political complexities through contemporary and historical lenses.
