Leaving Home by Jane Gregorius
PVAC invites your participation in an exhibit which explores the complex issues surrounding immigration. We are looking for art submissions in all media, which consider stories of leaving and arriving: the stories of immigration. Subjects could include: 

* Personal family stories 
* What immigrants take with them and what they leave behind 
* Effects of immigration on the individual
* Effects on the countries/families left behind 
* Effects on the new communities: how are immigrants perceived, received, integrated? 
* Assimilation/ Americanization: how do people start over and build community in a new country and culture? 
* Historical impacts of social and cultural migration 
* Experiences upon arrival including language, living conditions and work 
* What does prejudice/classism look, sound, and feel like? 
* Implications of status (illegal, alien, naturalized, citizenship)
