At this moment, across the world, over 65 million people are living away from their homes, driven out by political repression, war, famine, and environmental devastation. A small number of these people, overcoming enormous obstacles, and against all odds, have found their way to Maine.
This show is intended to raise awareness of the global human crisis as well as increase understanding of why the face of Maine has changed in the last decade. Some of the artists are recently displaced persons themselves; others are not. All twenty-five participating artists have shown, in their work, what moves them about this global human crisis.
A large show of work by 27 artists
