New Smithsonian Digital Exhibit Explores Immigration Stories Through H-1B Visas - NBC News

My article for NBC News re the Smithsonian H-1B Visa Art Exhibition (in which I have a multimedia piece with Jyoti Omi Chowdhury). Tanzila Ahmed also has a beautiful artwork in the exhibition.
Dr. Masum Momaya, Curator of "H-1B" told NBC News that the exhibition "illuminates an immigration status that often gets stereotyped or left out of dialogue around immigration in this United States. Each year, people from all over the world come to the United States for a better life; some find opportunity, and others endure great hardship. The artists in this show take us through the emotions and nuances of their journeys, illustrating new and complex layers of what has been a defining characteristic of America and American history: immigration."
