Immigration Nation at Urbano

Listen to this article


Immigration Nation is a community art project created in collaboration with community members and artists that uses suitcases as a vehicle to tell the story of individual immigrant journeys. Each suitcase will be transformed into a work of art that celebrates individual stories and represents a collective American experience. Over 400 suitcases will be produced and exhibited in 3 locations in collaboration with Urbano Project and the Egleston Square Main Street.

Immigration Nation is on exhibit through July 29 at Urbano. Learn more about Nora Valdez’s work here.
