Your Land, My Land: Immigrant Artists in the United States
Location: Cardamone Gallery in the Museum of Art
Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art is primarily a collection of art of the United States. With the exception of people indigenous to this continent, we are a nation of immigrants. Many “American” artists, such as Thomas Cole, were actually born in other countries. In the arts, as in other areas of life, persons who have come to the United States have been inspired by their new home. This gallery is dedicated to showcasing aspects of the collection that reflect the rich tradition of artists who traveled to the United States as children or adults, developed their talent, and shared it for the appreciation of all.
