Portrait of America “WE ARE: New Haven” Launches Spring 2018


In the Spring of 2018, “WE ARE: A Nation of Immigrants — New Haven” will feature public art installations by Joe Standart — uplifting the visual presence of immigrants in New Haven.
Portrait of America™ draws on the power of the arts to stimulate awareness, overcome indifference, and encourage people to build a respectful, multicultural society.
Using murals and stories centered on the New Haven Green, “WE ARE” highlights the inner dignity each individual possesses and aims to shift, the conversation about immigrant, dreamer, refugee and citizen identities.
