Bridget Garnai, Arts Management Intern
Welcome to America, a current exhibition by Carol Hamoy, was featured in the Miami student publication UP Magazine. The article, “Clothed in Identity” by former Miami University Art Museum intern Sam Forsthoefel, relates the powerful stories of women immigrants featured on Hamoy’s unique constructed and found garments to the idea of Native, UP Magazine’s theme for Fall 2016. Forsthoefel writes, “With familial and cultural histories inherent in each of us, we all coexist as natives at our very core. Our native story is what clothes and identifies us in a world of countless diversities.” Pick up a copy of UP Magazine on campus and around Oxford or read the magazine online!
