About the Exhibitions

The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America
Through the works of six contemporary artists, Andrea Bowers, Margarita Cabrera, Tony de los Reyes, Blane De St. Croix, Zhi Lin, and Hung Liu, The Other Side explores recurring issues of immigration, border relations, and labor practices that have persisted throughout U.S. history and remain timely. While the works employ different styles and references and span different historic periods, geographic locations, cultural influences, and gender perspectives, they are bound together by the common threads of memory, history, identity, and humanity.

Round Trip: Bicycling Asia Minor, 1891
In the summer of 1890, two young Americans, William Sachtleben and Thomas Allen, Jr., set off to circle the globe on new-fangled safety bicycles. Round Trip features a selection of photographs taken by the cyclists during a year on the road visiting Greece, Turkey, Persia (today Iran), and a portion of the Russian Empire (Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). The images vividly convey what the two adventurers experienced as they pedaled across barren dirt roads, river crossings, mountain passes, and volcanic terrains, encountering new peoples and cultures.
