“Immigrant Portraits” at Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration

“Immigrant Portraits: A Museum Dialogue Between São Paulo and New York” is scheduled to open on Ellis Island on May 1, 2015 at 1 p.m. The exhibit is the result of a partnership between the Immigration Museum of the State of São Paulo, Brazil and the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island. It commemorates the collective past of the immigrant experience in Brazil and the United States. Similar exhibits will run concurrently at the Immigration Museum of São Paulo and the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration.

Curator João Kulcsár of the Immigration Museum of the State of São Paulo selected the stories and photographs in the exhibits to ensure that they reflect the immigrant experience in both the United States and Brazil.

The exhibit will be on display in the third floor changing exhibit galleries in the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration from May 1- September 14, 2015.
