The Immigrant

An exhibit of 18 artworks inspired by ancient Chinese poetry and proverbs on themes of separation, loneliness, and resolution. The acrylic, collage, and rice paper pieces speak to the universal experience of immigrants in a strange land. Each work is accompanied by the appropriate text in the original Chinese and in the English translation.

Originally submitted by: Jon Kyl, Senator.
