Art From the US-Mexico Crossroads

August 5 - October 15, 2022

Stylistically diverse and thematically varied, the exhibit features 30 Borderland artists who examine their complex cultural inheritance and the ever-shifting relationship between the United States and Mexico—curated by Diana Molina.

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.
