In this exhibition, the original artwork of Orson Horchler (aka Pigeon) was combined with current news, historic photographs, manuscripts, and newspapers from the Maine Historical Society's collections to provide context to events in our past, to inform our future regarding the often contentious subject of immigration, and to ask, who is a Mainer?
