Gallery exhibit tells immigrants’ stories

(February 11, 2019)

The Grand Center for Arts and Culture held an opening reception for the “Immigration: Becoming American” exhibit in the Four Pillars Gallery Friday.

“Immigration: Becoming American” is a travelling photo exhibit by Green Card Voices which includes portraits of young immigrants along with their 200-word biography, a quote and a QR code. Exhibit-goers can scan the code with a smart device to watch the first-person video story of the young immigrant.

The exhibit is in partnership with the New Ulm Public Library and their “Becoming American” grant. The grant was brought in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
