How Did We Get Here? Migration Exhibit Takes Over CAP ArtSpace in November

From the earliest arrival of the Gayogohó:no people to the stream of students, workers, teachers, artists, researchers, entrepreneurs, refugees and others who come to live here every year, the story of Ithaca and Tompkins County is a story of migration, settlement and displacement.

This exhibition and event series How Did We Get Here? seeks to enrich the local dialogue on these issues, both here and in the world. It is a community response to trends in the national conversation about migration, as well as to the show how the light gets in at the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell.    

The exhibit features political cartoons about migration from around the world curated by Nicaraguan cartoonist and Ithaca City of Asylum artist-in-residence Pedro Molina; photography and text from the Their Story is Our Story project curated by Ithaca College associate professor Paul Wilson; and reflections on the Johnson Museum’s exhibition by graphic design students of IC assistant professor Patti Capaldi. 

How Did We Get Here? is organized by the People’s Pop-Up Project, an ad hoc consortium of individuals and community groups. The local nonprofit Weave Community is hosting the effort. Partners include Ithaca City of Asylum (ICOA), the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County, Open Doors English, WRFI Community Radio and Cinemapolis. The annual CAP ArtSpace sponsor is the Tompkins Trust Company.
