Photo Exhibit


“Home in a New Place” on view at CSAS; scenes from opening night. The exhibit was co-sponsored by the Carolina Asia Center, the Department of American Studies, the Center for Global Initiatives, and the “Food For All: Local and Global Perspectives” steering committee.

In spring 2016, the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, displayed twenty-four photos by Katy Clune. The exhibit, “Home in a New Place: Making Laos in Morganton, North Carolina,” encompassed text panels, temple banners from Laos, as well as two examples of Hmong story cloths. The opening reception featured special displays, Lao hors d’oeuvres by Vansana and Vanvisa Nolintha of Bida Manda (Raleigh, NC), remarks by Clune and Toon Phapphayboun, and a baci blessing ceremony led by Vansana Nolintha.

The exhibit will travel to the History Museum of Burke County, Morganton, NC, in fall 2016 (details forthcoming). A selection of Clune’s photos will also be on view at the FedEx Global Education Center at UNC-Chapel Hill in a fall 2016 exhibit organized by UNC Global.
