The Things We Carried: Guatemalan Stories

September, 2008 - March, 2009 | Rice Gallery

What would you bring if you were to leave your native country and emigrate to a new land? What things would you accumulate in your new home to remind you of your roots? Why?

The exhibit, The Things We Carriedasked these questions of Worcester-area Guatemalans and exhibited the items they carried here with them, the things they have since collected to remind them of home, and the traditions they still honor as they became Americans.
