Opening Reception: November 30th, 6 - 9 pm
Immigration is an issue that affects people living both inside and outside our borders. In many cases, people do not realize just how close to home these issues lie. There are preconceived notions of the United States: either as the land of opportunity or an arrogant powerhouse. US citizens sometimes stereotype immigrant as either hard-working, determined people, or foreigners threatening their way of life. And this dialogue is as prevalent now as it has been throughout the history of this country.
The topics of citizenship, naturalization, assimilation, deportation, human trafficking, demographics and patriotism resurface in debates about immigration time and time again. “Clandestine” invites creative thinkers and makers in all media to explore these issues.
