April 3 – July 29, 2018

“The Newest Americans” offers a unique look at the U.S. and the immigration process through the eyes of 28 new citizens.

A chronicle of two naturalization ceremonies held in 2017, the exhibit features portraits by Sam Comen and interviews by Michael Estrin. As the new citizens from over 20 countries of origin share why they came to this country and what the American Dream means to them, visitors are invited to join them in taking pride in the diversity, freedom and opportunity that continue to make America a beacon of hope around the world.

Opening April 3, 2018 at the California Museum in conjunction with Photography Month Sacramento, a month-long celebration dedicated to the art of photography throughout the Sacramento region. For more information and a list of participating venues, visit
