For years, we’ve heard stories of ‘Land of the Volcanoes’ and its tropical weather, the summer days of playing canicas and capiruchos, to las buenas épocas to survival stories during and after the Civil War. Our theme this year, is inspired by those stories told by our grandmothers and parents, who left their home El Salvador in hopes for a better future.
LIBERACIÓN: FROM VOLCANOES TO HOPE was a call to all Salvadorian visual artists to bring to life, their stories of lgbtq, personal experiences, generational, sex, and gender on canvas, photo and mixed media. Here is a sneak peak of some of the artwork that will be on display.
