Journey to America 

How Stories of Immigration & Migration Shape our Heritage & Culture

The Art Center Highland Park (TAC) is seeking art that visually expresses how personal stories of immigration shape our views of the American Dream. America is built on a diverse range of journeys at its core, from leaving homelands to assimilating into or alienation from new communities. The result creates a unique melting pot of cultures that make up the America story.
