A Declaration of Immigration

July 4 – September 7, 2008

A Declaration of Immigration is a contemporary exhibition that depicts many of the experiences and viewpoints within U.S. immigrant communities. The works of over 70 artists will help visitors to better understand this complex issue by providing immigrant perspectives that are seldom included in the national debate. As a vital part of the democratic process, artists and community based institutions play a critical role in any civic dialogue or struggle for social justice. This exhibition will launch the National Museum of Mexican Art’s three-year commitment to immigrant-centered programs.
