March 09, 2020
Start Time: 05:00 PM
End Time: 06:00 PM
During the month of March, the Looking For America exhibit will be on display in the Library Gallery. Meet Phillipa Hughes and other local artists to discuss this project and listen to poetry by the Writers for Migrant Justice at the Artist Reception Monday, March 9th at 5:00 pm. Inspired by Philippa Hughes’ Blueberries + Cherries dinners that began in her home after the 2016 election, Looking For America aims to understand how local culture and circumstance shape political perspectives across the United States, and how we can build more constructive, humanizing dialogue at a time of increasing division and polarization across America. In six dynamic communities across the United States, Looking for America partners with local cultural institutions to curate art exhibitions featuring immigrant and U.S.-born artists who answer the question, “What does it mean to be American in your community?” Community members from all backgrounds and political identities are invited to engage with each exhibition.
