To prompt Christian insights on immigration and to coincide with an ACU Summit pathway on “Peacemaking on the Southern Border,” the Brown Library is partnering with the ACU Art and Design Department, Student Government Association, and College of Business Administration to host an exhibit on immigration.
Tom Kiefer’s El Sueño Americano – The American Dream consists of examples and photographs of immigrant artifacts. Kiefer is a graphic artist whose work has been highlighted in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and on National Public Radio and elsewhere. Also on display is a sample of the US-Mexico border wall gifted by the US Border Patrol.
One of the pathway organizers, business professor Monty Lynn, shared that “We wanted to personalize the immigration journey that our superb Summit speakers are describing, and art was the answer. Seeing shoes and Bibles and personal items and feeling the steel wall prompt us to remember the immigrants these items represent and to reflect on Christian responses.”
The art is on exhibit from September 20 to October 20 across from the circulation desk. A sample of the art can also be viewed online at a virtual exhibition here.
