"Icons and Symbols of the Borderland" Opening
Friday, August 5, 2022
Join us for a new exhibition at the Museum of Art, Icons and Symbols of the Borderland Art from the U.S.-Mexico Crossroads, curated by Diana Molina. At the exhibit opening there will be live music and participating artist on hand to discuss their artwork.
Themes of the Environment, Sacred and Profane, the Frontier, and Foodways allow the artists to investigate the Mexican American, Anglo, and Indigenous experience and identity in the Borderlands. Broad in scope, the artists reference the region's pre-Columbian past, its colonial influences, its Indigenous legacy, and contemporary geo-political tensions. Through their artwork, they present an enduring sense of struggle, sacrifice, and regeneration.
