"After seventeen years here, I am certain of at least one thing: the liberal idea of America is at its best in advertising." - Sepha Stephanos in The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, and inspired by MacArthur Foundation Fellow Dinaw Mengestu's first novel, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears (2007), Finding Home: The Global Refugee Crisis will be on view at the UCF Art Gallery January 8 - February 2, 2018.

Featuring work by Reem Bassous, Alex Callender, Adrienne Der Marderosian, Pam Cooper, Joe Cory, Lauren Greenwald, Hiwa K, Hyung-in Kim, George Lorio, Casey McGuire, Vukasin Nedeljkovic, Binod Shrestha, Eun-Kyung Suh and Lance Winn.

The exhibition explores borders as geographical and symbolic dividing lines; displacement, asylum seeking, and migration; refugee camps and detention centers; resettlement cities; and political responses to the global refugee crisis.
