The Arab American National Museum (AANM) is proud to present Cultivate & Grow: An AANM Artists + Residents Retrospective. This retrospective exhibition features work from our artists-in-residence from 2020 to 2022. AANM launched the Artists + Residents program in 2016 to help support established and emerging Arab artists while rooting the program in our local community. Resident artists have made Dearborn their home and become part of the fabric of the most concentrated Arab community in the U.S., seeking dialogue and collaboration. Since then, we have proudly fostered artistic growth, cultivated relationships between artists and across mediums, and facilitated community engagement.

In addition to various artworks displayed, the exhibition includes an installation by Dahlia Elsayed and Andrew Haik Demirjian called Souvenirs from the Future.
