EXHIBITION: Home: Reflections on Place - Maine College of Art
Loading Events

October 5 - December 22

Home: Reflections on Place is an art exhibit of work created by New Mainers.


Home brings together artists who are first-generation Americans to explore the idea of personal residence or refuge.  Leaving one’s home and finding another, assimilating ideas of family, culture and community in a new place are part of the immigrant experience.  Each artist will document this experience and reflect on what home is.  Immigrants come to this country for many different reasons; for love, for work, for education or because they are fleeing.  Some people call this place home after six months while some third-, forth- or fifth-generation Americans still don’t consider it a homeland.  Home: Reflections on Place seeks to explore what makes a home, a residence, a homeland.

In addition, Home will celebrate the significant impact immigrant artists have in Maine’s cultural conversation. It will give the public the opportunity to engage with the social, political, and cultural elements at play when they think about what a home, a city, a state means to us.
