Curatorial statement: "We are living in a country that was built by immigrants whose roots reach all over the world. The focus of this exhibit is to celebrate what our ancestors have brought to this country and the people who were here before the Europeans came to this land.
The roots of the artists participating in this exhibit reach out to Native America, Africa, with stops in the Caribbean, Southern United States. The artists have chosen to create images that reflect historical events that have added to the American Dream. Others have chosen to express family connections.
This exhibit was inspired to combat the rising storm of separatism and division. Our roots are diversified but we are all part of the American Tree and a tree with strong roots can survive any storm."
