Even the Smallest Change Can Be Profound
Exhibition Dates: June 1, 2011- through August 3, 2012
MACLA/Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana is pleased to present Even the Smallest Change Can Be Profound: Recent Work by Efren Álvarez, Vic de la Rosa, Gregory Michael Hernandez, Monica Martinez, Gwen Mercado-Reyes & Esteban Salazar.
As agents of change, artists take a leadership role in society by examining transformation from the cultural, experiential, historical and scientific perspective. The artists included in this exhibition fulfill this role by presenting work that seeks to challenge the viewer by calling attention to issues such as: the immigrant journey, the changing landscape of national identity in the US, the complex history of place, our relationship with insects, life-threatening illnesses, and the cause and effect of social and political upheaval.
The Latina Coalition of Silicon Valley (LCSV) educates, prepares and connects Latinas in the areas of civic engagement
and leadership development as an expression of our shared values of service, commitment, and
appreciation for the Latinas who have paved the way for our successes.
