In celebration of the Arab American National Museum’s 10th anniversary, we proudly present the work of 10 exemplary Arab American artists. Their diverse range of works explores concepts of representation, identity and migration. Many of these challenges are universal among immigrants, but contain aspects unique to the Arab American community experience.

This exhibition was guest curated by art historian, writer and gallery art director Maymanah Farhat.
