HOME SWEET HOME AGAIN An Exhibition of Art & Poetry

Intermedia Arts and the Family Housing Fund invite you to experience "Home Sweet Home Again: An Exhibition of Art & Poetry" featuring visual artwork and poetry by local artists and poets on homelessness, affordable housing, and the meaning of home.

This incredible and moving exhibit travels around the Twin Cities to various locations and helps underscore the continued need for safe and affordable housing for all individuals and families in Minnesota. The exhibit first opened at Intermedia Arts in 2005 and we are proud to bring it back with new and never before seen work in celebration of Intermedia Arts' 40th Anniversary Year.

The exhibit is curated by Shawna Nelsen and Theresa Sweetland. It's worth checking out!

Exhibition Run: January 24 - March 30, 2013
Opening Reception: 6-9PM, January 24; 7PM Program and Poetry
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10-6PM; Saturday 12-5PM

Intermedia Arts is where the Lao Minnesotan artist Malichansouk Kouanchao and many others have exhibited their work in the past, including for the HOME SWEET HOME AGAIN exhibit. It was also the host of the 2010 Legacies of War: Refugee Nation Twin Cities multimedia exhibit and festival featuring the work of Lao American artists across the country. Lao Minnesotan writer Saymoukda Vongsay currently serves on their board of directors.
