The exhibition "Photography by Diana Velasco: Two Nationalities" presents a series of photographs exploring individuals who grew up with parents of two different nationalities—as Velasco herself did, with a Danish mother and Spanish father. This poses a particular challenge of personal identity in Denmark, where dual citizenship is not permitted at this time. The exhibition is organized by the Denmark Immigration Museum outside of Copenhagen; in addition to the Museum of Danish America, this exhibit will travel to the West Chicago Public Museum (West Chicago, IL) and the Nordic Heritage Museum (Seattle, WA).

Support for this exhibition and for an artist-in-residency with Diana Velasco comes from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
