open books: I Want to Go Home

open books returns to The Arts House with an experiential art installation that takes inspiration from Wesley Leon Aroozoo's I Want to Go Home. Co-curated and designed by Mural Lingo and The Arts House, the immersive multi-sensory installation invites you to encounter the strength of a man's love and resilience to be reunited with his loved one.

In open books: I Want to Go Home, multidisciplinary artists bring the literary work to live and convey the importance of love, hope, and determination in allowing us to overcome times of crisis.
