Wilson Center immigration exhibit featured in BDN
The Bangor Daily News reported on an interactive exhibit on display at the Wilson Center for Spiritual Exploration and Multifaith Dialogue. “Along the Migrant Trails” features items left behind by escaping migrants traveling along the Arizona/Mexico border. The exhibit was made possible by Sara Lowden, a Ph.D. student of anthropology and environmental policy at the University of Maine, and was curated by Arizona artist Deborah McCullough, who uses some items found along the trails in her 3-D artwork, according to the article. Lowden met McCullough and became familiar with her work through Tucson Samaritans, a group dedicated to saving the lives of those making the dangerous crossing to enter the U.S. illegally, the article states. Lowden said she wanted to bring the exhibit to Maine to humanize immigration. The Wilson Center will host public open houses for the exhibit at 2 p.m. Oct. 15 and 22.
