Refugee Art Makes History at Stewart
by Gretchen Jude
What do physicist Albert Einstein, painter Marc Chagall and Boise poet Fidel Nshombo all have in common? Simply calling them refugees isn't a fair way to answer the question. Yet all three have been among the millions displaced by world conflict during the past century, fleeing their homelands to escape persecution, imprisonment, even death. A more thorough (and satisfying) exploration of the plight of displaced persons can be found this week at Stewart Gallery.
