Our Stories of




Our Stories of Migration details human movement through art objects and storytelling.  Participants are invited to embroider their own ancestral, present, and future paths onto the surface of a world map tapestry, which has been constructed with digital images mined from the site-specific museum collections. Each image highlights a different object from the collection that embodies historical moments of cultural exchange. Whether these exchanges take the form of material goods gathered from a trade route or culturally specific images taking on a new meaning in a different land - Our Stories of Migration encourages critical engagement through personal and cultural histories. Additionally, visitors draw their own maps - which are continuously added to an animated archive - and write responses to the prompt question: "What does it mean to be a global citizen?"
