Opening Reception: September 22, 5-8pm / Artist Talk at 7pm

Art has the power to confront, challenge, and converse with the political world around us. Throughout time, artwork has been used as an activist platform, as way to express opinion, support, and opposition. Voces de Resistencia: Contemporary Latinx Activist Artists showcases work by local and national Latinx artists who have created artwork in response to politics, social movements, immigration, borders, and cultural identity. Join us in the celebration of these national and local activist artists and the powerful messages their work conveys.
