“Home in a New Place” Travels to Morganton, NC

card with pattern-01

Join us in Morganton, North Carolina, at City Hall for “Home in a New Place,” photographs by Katy A. Clune. The exhibit was our featured Art @ the Center last spring and appeared in the Documentary Arts Issue of Southern Cultures.

 Clune’s photographs depict an immigrant community in Morganton, including the family of Toon Phapphayboun, who escaped Laos by swimming across the Mekong River at age 14. This collection explores three realms essential to the Phapphaybouns’ identity in North Carolina: their home and holiday traditions; the family restaurant; and the Buddhist temple they helped to establish.

The exhibit opens on February 6 at City Hall in Morganton. Find more information here.
