Lunch and Lecture Series “Immigration in Tippecanoe” @ TCHA History Center
Jun 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Beginning in the Fall of 2017, artists from the Greater Lafayette Figure Guild (GLFG)  decided to focus their eyes and abilities towards neighbors who have immigrated to the United States. When drawing or painting their portraits, they also learn more about their subjects’ lives, especially from conversations during the breaks. The artists decided to create a questionnaire to offer to their immigrant subjects as a means of better understanding their concerns, their hopes for the future, and their experiences in America. Several artist members from the GLFG  will present portraits and share some of the meaningful things they have learned from creating the portraits and getting acquainted with their subjects.
