The Art of the Journey – Art Inspired by the Immigrant Experience in California
The Fresno County Public Library invites artists from all experience levels and backgrounds to submit artwork for our upcoming Art Hop show The Art of the Journey – Art Inspired by the Immigrant Experience in California. This show is the third program in the Tell Us Your Story series. Through California Center for the Book and California Humanities, the Fresno County Public Library has created a series of four programs that allow community members to share their stories in different formats.
Starting September 10th, the Betty Rodriguez Regional Library will highlight stories told through the visual arts, hosting an Art Hop showcase featuring works submitted by community members that help tell stories about “Coming to California.” We welcome art that shows the stories and the experiences of “Coming to California,” from other countries or from other states.
Accepted artwork for The Art of the Journey will be on display at the Betty Rodriguez Regional Library, 3040 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93703, September 10 – October 9, 2017. A reception will be held on Thursday, September 21, 5-8 pm.

Please keep in mind that the Library is a public space. Wall mounted 2-D works are ideal. There will be limited space for 3-D works. All artwork must be ready to hang when dropped off.
