Andrew Mcilvaine: Resilience Story

On view Apr. 6 to Oct. 15, 2023

Emotions and memories inspire the mixed media installation and sound exhibition Resilience Story.

"In the space, viewers encounter drawings on paño, which are works on fabric traditionally created by Chicano prisoners from the south and southwestern United States," said Mcilvaine. "These works express feelings of loss, progress, hope, love and highlight stories of resilience. This show is about redemption through imprisonment and generational movement."

Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, April 6, at 6 p.m.

Workshop: Saturday, April 8, at 3:30 p.m.
