Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Several dynamic artists will discuss their vision, artistic philosophy, and the ways their works explore the vastness of the immigrant experience at In Our Own Words: An Artist Talk. The exhibition, up through August 31st, showcases works in a broad range of mediums, which aim to bring multi-faceted immigrant perspectives to the foreground while challenging narratives imposed by the dominant culture. Artists will discuss their processes and inspiration for highlighting these particular aspects of immigrant life.

In Our Own Words creates spaces for the emergence of new discourse around what it truly means to be an immigrant and how that uniqueness is brought to bear in the continual formation of a distinctly American culture.
