Art and the Immigrant Experience: Culture Lab Detroit Panel Discussion

In honor of Culture Lab Detroit’s 2016 program, “Walls,” a group of people will be at the Gary Simmons Installation’s unveiling to discuss how art brings people together, and what role it plays for immigrants. Speakers include Migguel Anggelo, Kia Arriaga, Chido Johnson, Rola Nashef, and Gracie Xavier. All artists and immigrants, they are definitely the experts that you want to hear from about this stuff. If you go, you’re sure to hear about hot-button issues like the refugee crisis and the end of the election. You’ll also hear about the important role that immigrants have played in creating America’s cultural identity.
