We are Celebrating local Chicana artists who have been working in their communities as activists, educators, and artists for the last 30 years and providing a platform that opens a dialogue to strengthen the ideas surrounding women of color. Museo will be overtaken by large-scale installations that depict the multifaceted identities of Latina women. Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be contributing a community installation of 1,000 butterflies. Audio will carry the voices of women that have suffered and persevered from the hands of domestic violence. Las (H)adas explores cultural connections linked to the idea of identity and bicultural influences. Exploring this process unveils for us how far our postcolonial, consumerized mind has distanced itself from our humanity: sacred, magical, and divine.
