Opening Reception for Summer 2022 Exhibitions 

Saturday - July 9 - 6-9pm

Arlington, VA: Opening July 9 and running through September 4, 2022, A Journey Not Soon Forgotten explores the global impacts of migration. This exhibition follows the practices of nine artists who have either immigrated to the Unites States themselves or are the children of immigrants. The artwork on display showcases the physicality, spirituality, and conceptuality that is birthed through migration.

Artists in this exhibition are working through ideas of lineage and labor while also examining political interests and significant historical events - domestic and abroad - that affect their self-identity and many of the people(s) they care about. A Journey Not Soon Forgotten features artists that share their personal experiences with migration in an effort to advocate for the interests of these global communities.

A reception to celebrate A Journey Not Soon Forgotten and AAC's other summer exhibitions will take place July 9 from 6pm to 9pm. Registration is required. For more information and to register click this link.
