New Exhibit in Honor of Immigrant Heritage Month

Mayor Martin J. Walsh, together with the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture and the Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement, announced a new exhibit on display at City Hall throughout the month of June in honor of Immigrant Heritage Month. The exhibit, The Faces of Syrian Refugees, profiles 20 Syrians who fled their war-torn homeland and have resettled in new countries in Europe and North America, and who are now in homes and building new lives.

“The Faces of Syrian Refugees exhibit is incredibly powerful, and humanizes the refugee crisis in a way that is thought-provoking and leaves a lasting impact,” said Mayor Walsh. “I encourage everyone to come visit this exhibit over the course of Immigrant Heritage Month, and experience the story of each individual featured in the photos.”
