Availability: In Stock
The American Immigrant's Dreams and Reality are juxtaposed in this I Thought the Streets Were Paved with Gold 1000 piece puzzle by Pacita Abad.
At Ellis Island Pacita Abad read a saying by an Italian immigrant that resonated with her,
“I came to America because I heard the streets were paved with gold. When I got here, I found out three things: first, the streets weren’t paved with gold; second, they weren’t paved at all; and third, I was expected to pave them.”
Perhaps more than any other artist featured in our growing collection, the work of Pacita Abad encapsulates the fighting spirit of US immigrant populations. Her empathic representation is striking for its thematic juxtaposition of universal, systemic struggle with triumphant hope and immutable vibrancy in the face of insurmountable odds.
