Munson Museum of Art’s spring exhibition, Between Worlds – Utica Observer Dispatch

Over the past century, the world has experienced an unprecedented migration of people due to geopolitical forces, economic crises and opportunities, and climate change.

The Munson Museum of Art’s spring exhibition, Between Worlds, showcases art that offers new perspectives on migration narratives, officials said. 

For the first time, Munson Director of Education April Oswald will be offering English Second Language (ESL) classes in conjunction with the exhibit. She will provide prompts to help visitors navigate themes of displacement, belonging, and homecoming. 

According to exhibit curator, Mary Murray, the contributing artists represent a variety of backgrounds and sensibilities. They have immigrated from other countries, experienced the Great Migration, or come from African or Indigenous ancestors that were forced to move from their homelands, she explained.

“Migration isn’t just the relocation from one country to another,” said Murray. “The United States has a very mobile population and movement is a deep part of our shared cultural spirit.”
