More About Maine College of Art:

MECA is located in the heart of the Portland's Art District.

Open Wed-Sun 11am to 5pm, Thurs 11am to 7pm and First Fridays until 8pm. Admission is free. The College offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts, a Master of Fine Arts, a Post-Baccalaureate in Art Education and Continuing Studies for adults and youth.

The artists challenge the idea that migration is an exception or a crisis, showing viewers that migration is now the norm.

Migration, mobility, and displacement is the story of our era. Fears about human mobility and border crossers are reshaping politics; climate change promises to cause massive displacements; global leaders are scrambling to reconfigure and secure borders; people everywhere are moving to find safe lives for their families. The artists in Making Migration Visible: Traces, Tracks & Pathways challenge the idea that migration is an exception or a crisis, showing viewers that migration is now the norm, inscribed in our landscapes, memories, bodies, and imaginings. What kind of a world do we want to create in this era of great mobility?

In addition to the ICA exhibition, Making Migration Visible is a state-wide initiative featuring events by dozens of partnering organizations offering parallel exhibitions, film screenings, performances, lectures, community dinners, poetry, and more.

The initiative also includes a day-long symposium, ART+POLITICS, on November 2nd that is open to the public.
