Coming to America: The Immigrant Experience Featuring the Lost Mural of Ellis Island
Andrew and Roberta Sabori made the journey to Ellis Island in 2003 to discover information about his family's immigration the United States. While walking through the exhibition halls, Roberta was drawn to a photo of what looked like a mural in the island's dining hall. Inquiries to the staff revealed that almost no one could shed light on the work . A muralist himself, Sabori then began a years-long journey to rediscover the story of the long-forgotten mural by Edward Laning. Following a painstaking research to discover pictures of each panel, Sabori began painting an 85-foot reproduction of the Laning mural in 2008. The now-completed work of art will be exhibited in Edwards Hall on the front of ABAC's Tifton campus for the entirety of spring semester 2022.
