Gateways/Portales

Gateways/Portales

December 5, 2016 – January 7, 2018

Gateway: any entrance or passage that may be opened and closed.

Portal: una entrada o pasaje que puede abrirse o cerrarse.

What does it mean for Latino migrants and immigrants to make a home in a U.S. city? Both struggle and triumph. Through the gateways of social justice, community access, and public festivals, this exhibition explores the experiences of Latino migrants and immigrants in four U.S. metro areas: Washington DC, Baltimore, MD; Charlotte, NC; and Raleigh-Durham, NC.

¿Qué significa para los migrantes e inmigrantes latinos establecer su hogar en una ciudad estadounidense? Significa a la vez lucha y triunfo. Esta exposición documenta instituciones, organizaciones, servicios y personas que han servido como portales para el crecimiento de las comunidades latinas.
