“The Fruits of My Mother’s Labor”
Friday, February 22nd, 2019, 6-8pm

The artist:
Pao Houa Her was born in 1980 in Laos and was raised in Saint Paul, MN. She currently lives in Lino Lakes, MN a suburb of the Twin Cities. In 2012, she received a MFA in Photography from the Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT and in 2009 a BFA in Photography from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

This exhibit:
“The Fruits of My Mother’s Labor” is a collection of photographs taken between 2016 and 2018 in and around the home of my parents on the Eastside of Saint Paul. Their 1960s rambler, one block from Lake Phalen, incapsulates their desire for the American dream. Those ideals were transferred to us, their children. These photographs attempt to speak to those dreams and desire.
