About "A (GOOD) AMERICAN":

Explore What It Means to be “A (GOOD) AMERICAN” in New Art Exhibition

In the new exhibition, “A (GOOD) AMERICAN”, seven artists examine the immigrant experience in America in an era when the patriotism of American immigrants is under constant scrutiny. The artists use the interior and exterior spaces of the Heurich House Museum, historic home of 19th century German immigrant Christian Heurich, as backdrop and inspiration from October 5th to November 10th, 2018.

The following artists will be featured: Sobia Ahmad, Antonius Bui, Irene Clouthier, Hoesy Corona, Andy Fernandez, Alden Leonard, and Carolina Mayorga.

The exhibition is curated by Philippa Hughes. Philippa designs creative placemaking projects as a social sculptor who brings people together who might not normally meet to engage in dialogue and meaningful interaction. She constructs human-centered activations that facilitate connections between neighbors, reinforce community bonds, and strengthen relationships.

“A (GOOD) AMERICAN” draws some of its inspiration from the Heurich family’s own personal experiences of being targeted by anti-German sentiment during WWI. Heurich recalls that painful time in the autobiography he wrote towards the end of this life, saying: “Within my powers, and in so far as an old man was able, I was as good an American as were you.”

For the last viewing of A (GOOD) AMERICAN, please join us at our closing party on November 9th from 6-9pm.

Our website will contain the latest information about specific events.
