HALLOWELL, MAINE — The Harlow, in partnership with the Capital Area New Mainers Project (CANMP), presents “A Nation of Immigrants: Home Lost, Home Found.” The exhibition is on view November 2-24, 2018 at 100 Water Street in Hallowell with an opening reception on Saturday, November 3, 5-7pm. This is a raw and fraught time in the world as we struggle to respond to the fact that 65 million people have been displaced from their homes. What is the experience of those newly arrived and those who may have come long ago? What is has been gained, what has been lost? What does it mean to be a “Nation of Immigrants”?
