Now through February 24, 2020, an exhibition featuring photographs, audio recordings and stories can be experienced at the Port Washington Library in the Community Gallery on the Mezzanine Level. Called “Journey Through the Eyes of an Immigrant,” the exhibit shares the stories of immigrants who come to the US and enrich our neighborhoods. Read about a woman who started a business with her mom in El Salvador, a British woman who survived WWII by seeking refuge in caves, a young Italian man who came here to learn mixed martial arts and so many more. The opening reception welcomed State Senator Anna Kaplan, who is an immigrant herself, from Iran.

The exhibit is funded and supported by “Friends of the Library,” as well as the “Decentralization Program,” a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council. For questions about the project, please contact Sonia Arora at sonia@meow.name.
