Join MAA in touring the exhibition of 300 panels created by local artists paying tribute to their ancestors’ and their own immigration experiences, and then enjoy lunch nearby.
Saturday, December 1
About the Exhibition: For ArtWatch collective’s “One House Project” exhibit, participants have been given a simple wood panel measuring 12-inches square on which to tell the story of one of their ancestors who came to this country from elsewhere, whether voluntarily or involuntarily. Participants who are themselves immigrants were encouraged to use the panel to tell their own story. Native Americans, who were the first inhabitants of this land, may honor any ancestor whose life story is important to them. ArtWatch Collective constructed an underlying structure — a house — and attach the completed panels to the outside, covering it completely. The “One House Project” exhibit also incorporates audio and video recordings of contributing participants.
Where to Meet / Getting There: Meet at the main entrance of the BlackRock Center for the Arts, 12901 Town Commons Dr. in Germantown. Directions
Lunch: The group will go to nearby Ruby Tuesdays for lunch. To make settling the bill easier, kindly bring cash to cover the cost of your meal.
