Little Laos on the Prairie (LLOTP) invites you to join us for “Refuge of the InvisibLao: A Visual Essay”, a storytelling art and photography exhibit. The exhibit will feature the work of acclaimed neo-expressionist Chicago-based artist Chanthala Kommanivanh and past and present portraits of Lao American journeys that were collected by LLOTP Founding Editor, Chanida Phaengdara Potter, as well as other special guests. The event welcomes community members, public officials, advocates, scholars, and those interested in immigrant stories from Laos and Southeast Asia.
