WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The kick-off for ARTSEE, the massive Westchester celebration spanning 70 events and 40 organizations, begins March 15 with the opening of " Crossing Borders " at the ArtsWestchester exhibit space in White Plains.

The exhibit -- the formal name is "Crossing Borders: Memory and Heritage in a New America" --  is a celebration of all that the United States, a nation of immigrants, is built on.

The show features 10 artists from Iran, China, Israel and South Africa who have struggled with issues of assimilation, heritage and divided identities. Their work explores universal concerns of memory and cross-culturalism within New York's immigrant community.

"Crossing Borders" is free. It will be on view beginning noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 15 through Saturday, May 2 in the Peckham & Shenkman Galleries at ArtsWestchester. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.
