Description:

The Beverly & Sam Ross Gallery at CBU presents two new exhibitions, both of which deal with the subject of immigration. “Migration Now” is a collection of handmade prints that address the act of migration and immigration, and the political, social, and racial issues that often accompany it; “Mi Casa es Your House” features recent work by Vanessa Gonzalez in the gallery foyer.

“Migration Now” is a traveling exhibition of a limited-edition portfolio of handmade prints that address migrant issues from the organizations Justseeds and CultureStrikeJustseeds is a decentralized, worker-owned cooperative of artists throughout North America who are committed to social, environmental, and political engagement. CultureStrike is a broad network of artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and other cultural workers who work to transform public views and sentiment around migration, and to fight for equity and full inclusion of migrants and their communities in America’s social fabric.

A public reception for the exhibitions will be held on Friday, March 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Both exhibitions will run through April 10.
