Migrant Eyes: Visual Stories of Life in a New Country

 Friday, September 29, 2017 to Friday, March 2, 2018

Featured along with our annual Open House is a new lobby exhibit titled, Migrant Eyes:  Visual Stories of Life in a New Country, curated by Corrie Boudreaux.  The exhibit represents the results of a participatory photography project with immigrant youth in the New Orleans area.  Its goal is to give children a tool for creative self-expression while introducing the broader community to some of the issues and experiences faced by immigrants in the United States.  During the summer of 2017, five children ranging in age from 8 to 18 participated in a workshop on photographic expression.  The collection on display in the 4th floor lobby of Howard-Tilton Memorial Library are the images produced by the children that represent a range of their experiences and emotions as young immigrants.
