A new photo exhibit strives to demonstrate the great diversity in Galesburg’s immigrant population.
“We have people from all over the world of all ages. We have individuals who have come alone (and) those who have come with their entire family,” said Project Director Chelsea Castillo Macek.
“I think something that is unknown to many is that we have an extremely educated professional immigrant community. We have members who are surgeons, engineers, marketing professionals, teachers, pastors, artists – the diversity on that level, professionally, is also really profound.”
