Special Exhibit "Bhutanese-Nepali Neighbors: Photographs by Tariq Tarey"
The history of more than 20,000 Bhutanese-Nepali people in Columbus is rapidly becoming the history of Ohio. This exhibit consists of 30 photographs of members of the Bhutanese-Nepali community, taken by Tariq Tarey. Each photograph is accompanied by a narrative written by Doug Rutledge that explains each individual's history. These photographs emphasize the historic sequence of the Bhutanese-Nepali refugee experience; from living and working in Bhutan, to being forced to leave Bhutan, the experience of living in refugee camps in Nepal for 20 years or more, to resettlement in Columbus, finding jobs, buying homes, and finally becoming American citizens. This exhibit is on loan from the Ohio History Connection. Admission is included with the price of a museum ticket. Exhibit will be open through May 25, 2018.
