The exhibit also highlights contributions of a growing Latino population in Connecticut. Along with the photography by Amanda May of Registro, the show also includes text provided by the participants about what they feel their greatest accomplishment has been. All text is in English for this exhibition.
Each person that was chosen, of the some 140 participants, has a different story to tell and brings a different contribution to society, be it large or small, public or private.
From butchers in Fair Haven to the Mayor of Hartford, their personal success stories come from many different countries and backgrounds and will truly inspire those who visit the exhibit. Through their hard work and personal successes, they help make up the thriving Latino population here in the state. Individually, these are personal accounts. Together, they tell the story of the progress of a people.
