The Nepantla Art Exhibit:
Nepantla, an art gallery created by MVC professor of art Cristina Medina, is currently open through April 7. Drawings and other pieces of artwork are on display throughout the gallery, with each piece telling its own story. The word Nepantla is a Nahuatl word, from an indigenous Mexican language, meaning “in the middle of it” or “middle.”
The ideas and work featured at the exhibit center around her Mexican heritage. This gallery touches on many current day events in the media, reflecting view points from people of color and the topic of immigration.
We encourage the community to stop by and experience Cristina’s work on display here at the Cliff Gallery located on campus at MVC. On Wednesday, March 29 at 10:10 a.m. there will be a workshop with Cristina inside the gallery, and Friday, March 31 Cristina will speak at a reception from 6-8 p.m. Please try and stop by to support one of our own and all her hard work.
