Art Exhibit
Paloma: Stories of the Soul

"These works are prayers in visual form. During times of grief, suffering, contemplation, hope, and peace, I see the colorful birds of El Salvador’s folk art as symbols of the soul and a continual source of inspiration. The spirit of the paloma in this work represents the soul of my child, my self, my people, and my ancestors." - Rebekah Crisanta, Artist

“Stories shape experiences and experiences shape stories. From  painful life events, such as the loss of a child, to negotiating issues of colonization, religion, and womanhood, Crisanta’s journey through grief  illuminates the resiliency of the human spirit. Using mixed materials, intense colors, and varied textures, Crisanta’s stories are rooted in herstory of El Salvador, spirituality of the diaspora, and indigenous practices. Ultimately, Crisanta reminds us that art is a way to make sense of our experiences and heal the stories we carry.”       - Jessica Lopez Lyman, Curator

Landscapes of Memory: 
Thinking About Cemeteries
Thursdays, May 8 & 15,
6:30 to 8:30 pm

Cemeteries are places saturated with meaning. To walk through a burial ground is to come face to face with some of life’s enduring mysteries: death and survival, healing and grief, deep time and the miracle of dailiness, stories preserved and stories lost.
