When Home Won’t Let You Stay is a poignant traveling photography exhibition and community conversation series about refugees in America by St. Paul, MN-based documentary artist James A. Bowey. It provides a new perspective on the often hidden lives and compelling experiences of refugees in our communities. The number of globally displaced people has risen dramatically in recent years and is expected to continue to rise in response to ongoing conflicts, poverty, and climate change. International and national events have prompted debates in communities across the country about our duty to refugees, our American roots, and national identity. The traveling exhibition consists of contemporary color portraits accompanied by first-person stories highlighting the plight and resiliency of refugees working to make a new home in this country. For more detailed information, please visit the website whenhomewontletyoustay.org.

An artist reception and community conversation will be held on August 23rd at 6 pm for all to attend. Mark your calendar and check unitecloud.org/refugee-art for registration details.

A portion of this exhibit is made possible by the Central MN Arts Board grant.
