Abstract:
The exhibition Far from Home features work by artists of diverse national, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds. The exhibit also includes works of art that address the displacement of people and populations in the global community as they relocate for economic, political, education, or familial reasons. All of the artists featured have relocated and their art often reflects this event and the distance they feel from their homes. The exhibit explores how being displaced affects creativity and one’s identity.
