Private Landscapes and Public Territories: The Work of Amalia Mesa-Baines

When: Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 16 2018

In this exhibition, Amalia Mesa-Bains focuses on the importance of place and memory through botanical prints, mapping images, landscape shadow boxes, altars, folding books and installations. The themes of family geographies and historical displacements of Latino and native peoples are represented through border maps, archival images and native plants. The narratives of human geography help us to see that our private landscapes have always been part of larger public territories beset by histories of change, loss and memory.

Price: $10 general admission; $7 seniors, college students, SV residents; $5 ages 13-17; 12 and under free
