    AN IMMIGRANT’S VISION What would it mean for refugees and immigrants to the US to be seen and recognized as part of the fabric of everyday life? How can portraiture forge connections between strangers, and potentially foster community? These questions lie at the heart of Joe Standart’s public art and community engagement initiatives, currently displayed at the William Benton Museum of Art in the exhibition Immigrant Eyes.
