Bridging the Americas: Community and Belonging from Panama to Washington, D.C.

Bridging the Americas: Community and Belonging from Panama to Washington, D.C.

April 13, 2015 – Indefinitely

Location: Program Room

Using images and narratives, this exhibition presents the various ways in which Zonians and Panamanians in the D.C. metropolitan area think about home and belonging in and in-between Panama and Washington, D.C. From passage during the California Gold Rush to the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal in 2014, the United States and Panama have a long and intertwined history. The exhibition shows the formal ties between the two nations but focuses on the human stories and migrations that underscore the connection.
