Through February 27

We are really excited to be able to share with everyone the final selected images for our 3rd annual curated photography exhibit, Our Diversity is Our Strength! Never has it felt more important to share photographs and stories of people who have come to this country for the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families and who have given so much to our country and communities.
With the increasing hate speech we are experiencing, often against immigrants, and which dehumanizes entire groups of people, we are grateful to get to share these stories as an antidote. When we allow ourselves to stop and really see each other, to be willing to hear someone’s story, to see our common humanity, we understand we are not so different. It opens the door to mutual understanding and empathy.
We must find a way to first, always see the humanity in each other. It is the only way we will start to heal the deep wounds and divisions in this country.
All of the 37 selected prints can be seen now at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Some images will be up on the community wall through February 27th, and all of the images will be available in the gallery’s community viewing drawings through December 2021. Blue Sky Gallery visits are by appointment only right now, please check here for availability, calendly.com/blueskyappointments/visit. We will also be sharing all of the images on our IG account, Our Diversity is Our Strength.
