Juried Photo Exhibition

The U.S., more than any other nation, is a melting pot of different cultures. Our modern America was born out of diverse immigration, and has continued tob e a destination and safe haven for many in countries all across the globe to settle themselves and their families.

There's a feeling of belonging to one's own tribe - ethnic, religious, or otherwise - as well as being part of the overall fabric of America, stitched together by core beliefs of freedom, opportunity, and equality. This diversity of ideas and cultures has been what makes this country extraordinary, inspiring, different, and beautiful, even as we struggle with the division and conflict they have wrought.
