COMING TO AMERICA: THE STORY OF JOURNEYS NORTH TO THE UNITED STATES

This afternoon a collective of Chattanooga's refugee and immigrant communities will share their stories about their journeys north to the United States. We’ll have a group discussion and guests will also have an opportunity to visit the current exhibit, Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art. 

This program is presented in partnership with Coming to America: The Story of Us.

Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by Altria Group, the Honorable Aida M. Alvarez, Judah Best, The James F. Dicke Family Endowment, Sheila Duignan and Mike Wilkins, Tania and Tom Evans, Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, The Michael A. and the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello Endowment, Henry R. Muñoz III, Wells Fargo and Zions Bank. Additional significant support was provided by The Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center. Support for “Treasures to Go,” the museum’s traveling exhibition program, comes from The C.F. Foundation, Atlanta.
