Arts Salon “IamMigration”
September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Join us at Gallery UMA as we explore the artwork in the current exhibit entitled “IamMigration: A Lived Experience.” Meet many of the artists and experience an evening of music, poetry and conversation.
“IamMigration” explores the subject of immigration through the artwork of first and second generation U.S. immigrants. By way of drawings, paintings, photographs, mixed media collage and poetry, these artworks provoke thought about leaving one’s home country, the nature of migration and transition, the complex experience of living in a new land, pride in one’s cultural identity and finding beauty in ordinary things that transcend both country and culture.
The exhibit also explores the common experience of human migration. Whether immigrant or not, we all experience transition from one place to another – it can be physical, emotional, relational, spiritual or simply a shift in perspective. This exhibit invites you to reflect on the experience of human migration in its many forms.
What is an arts salon? More than a gallery reception, an arts salon is a deeper way to experience an art exhibit. EVERYONE is invited and welcome, regardless of your background in exploring the arts.
The event is free but please register at the ticket website link. Donations to UMA are encouraged.
Special thanks to Benjamin Jacques and Sanctuary UCC Church of Medford for coordinating and displaying the first iteration of this exhibit. Thanks also to the Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. of Malden and all the artists who contributed their work.
