The exhibition invites Lexington residents (Children, Youth and adults) to submit writings and paintings that capture the immigrant experience – the emotions, successes, challenges, courage and resilience in pursuit of the American dream.

A panel of professional volunteers will review all submissions, with top entries in each category receiving Golden, Silver and Bronze awards. Winning writings will be featured in the form of abstracts or the first three pages, alongside awarded paintings.

The exhibition highlights the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion by providing a platform to share these powerful narratives of immigration. It is hosted by local organizations including the Chinese American Association Lexington, Lexington Council for the Arts, Lexington Lyceum Advocate, Indian Americans of Lexington, Japanese Support Group of Lexington, Association of Black Citizens of Lexington, Lexington Historical Society, Monroe Center for the Arts, and Lexington Human Rights Committee.

A special storytelling reception will be held on Thursday, May 30 from 6:30-8:30pm, where light refreshments will be provided. This celebration of Lexington’s rich cultural diversity and the invaluable contributions of immigrants is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together through art and shared stories.
