As Benvidas, The Welcomes, Las bienvenidas

“The Welcomes” is an exhibition curated by James D. Fernández and Luis Argeo (authors of the book Invisible Immigrants: Spaniards in the US 1868-1945), who have spent almost ten years digitizing the family archives of descendants of Spaniards who emigrated to the US. In counterpoint with “The Goodbyes”, which highlights the sweet sorrow of partings, “The Welcomes” documents and celebrates the bitter joys of arrivals.
