My maternal grandparents and great grandparents emigrated from Italy at the beginning of the 20th century to find educational and employment opportunities in America. My panel pays tribute to their courage in leaving all that was familiar behind in Southern Italy to venture into the unknown in order to improve themselves and their children. Their dreams did come true...while my great grandparents were illiterate, their son, my grandfather, earned a law degree in New York in 1929. My panel includes glass and paper elements alluding to their journey.
