What is Home? Art Show Opening and Community Discussion
The library is hosting a 2 in 1 combined art show that celebrates and explores the concept of home through immigrant narratives reimagined by artists. In Your Neighbor's Story " artists joined both documented and undocumented new Americans and novelist/journalist Masha Hamilton for lengthy interviews. They then created unique pieces that capture memories, bits that might otherwise be lost. Curated by Maya Fell, the project’s hope is to help erode stereotypes, overcome divisiveness and create not only understanding but friendships."
Art work will be on display in the meeting room of the Centreville library from September 13th - October 15th.
What Is Home? was created by one of the artists from Your Neighbor's Story to bring people back into the library, by taking those narratives and creating a window panel artwork that can be viewed at any time. We are also asking our community What Is Home? by offering postcards for people to fill out and return to the library.
These responses will then be used to spark conversation at our Artist Panel at the QAC Centre for the Arts on September 25th @ 6:00pm. Artwork will also be on view for the conversation.
