Amanda, Angie, and Miguel grappled with ideas of translation, linguistics, and storytelling when they interviewed service keepers with the purpose of honoring their journeys and work.
These three bilingual students curated an exhibit featuring portraiture, text, and translation in a moving testament to story documentation, the nuances of linguistics, and the complexities of the American Dream.
The “Retelling of American Stories” installation includes opportunities for advocacy and service projects across the community.
