The World Art Exhibit features drawings by thirty three refugees and immigrants from
fifteen countries, all of whom live, work, and study in the Charlottesville area. I invited
adult students in English classes to participate by drawing images of their memories from
their home countries. The show is an opportunity for refugees to connect with the larger
Charlottesville community by introducing themselves through their images. The
International Rescue Committee sponsored this work in many venues in town from 2016
through 2018.
