IAmMigration Reception

Sunday, June 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Gallery at Sanctuary invites you to an open house, performances and reception celebrating its current installation, “IAmMigration: A Lived Experience.” The installation features a wide-ranging collection of visual art, fabric art, poetry, collage, and music from local artists who have lived the experience of migrating to the United States.

Contributors include Sylvestre Telfort and Bitho Faustin, two visual artists from Haiti; Thaer Abdallah, a Palestinian artist from Iraq; and Anna Thai, an embroidery artist from Vietnam. Other artists come from China, Guatemala, Iran, Brazil, Ukraine, El Salvador and beyond. One of the most striking pieces is Faustin’s painting, “Boat People,” depicting in rich blues and yellows the desperate crossing by boat to Miami. Hear from the artists directly about how their art expresses their experience of immigration, and enjoy original music, poetry, food, community, and community connection in Sanctuary’s outdoor reception space.

The installation will be on view through July 15.
