Although immigration is one of the biggest issues in the Americas today, the narrative about immigration in the US is very narrow. Media coverage is largely negative, with tremendous focus on illegality, anxiety, and fear. But art offers a new way into these complicated debates. Baggage Claim showcases ten artists who invite audiences to consider different perspectives. Come explore the nuances.

Featuring works by Sheila Pree Bright (GA), Andrea Cauthen (NY), Alonzo Davis (MD), Vanessa "Agana" Espinoza (CA), Nery Gabriel Lemus (CA), Wendy Phillips (GA), Favianna Rodriguez (CA), Jerry Truong (MD), Amare S. Worku (MD), and Ruee Gawarikar (NJ).
