Immigration Nation is a community art project created in collaboration with community members and artists that uses suitcases as a vehicle to tell the story of individual immigrant journeys. Each suitcase was transformed into a work of art that celebrates individual stories and represents a collective American experience. Over 500 suitcases were produced and exhibited in 3 locations in collaboration with the Urbano Project and the Egleston Square Main Street. Immigration Nation was also exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston for Memorial Day week on 2018.
