Description

The artists in this exhibition present the unique heritage of maize and corn in the Americas and illustrate this crop's journey from pre-Columbian times to today: once a sacred staple associated with a mother/virgin figure, today an engineered product which many compare to a monster. On view through February 15, 2014, Maize Y Más features painting, sculpture, mixed-media work, video, and performance; new and recent works by Yvonne Escalante, Yolanda Guerra, Fernando Mastrangelo, Viva Paredes, and Jorge Rojas express conceptions and interpretations of food and corn through themes of colonial history, personal identity, ethnicity, family, community, and even divinity.

Gallery Hours:
Wednesday & Thursday, 12pm to 7pm
Friday & Saturday, 12pm to 5pm
