Program Title MORENA MODERNA, CONTEMPORARY VISIONS OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
 
Program Description As a modern symbol of empowerment, La Virgen de Guadalupe inspires an impassioned and universal fervor.

Program Title SEVEN STRING BARBED WIRE FENCE: The Many Faces of Latino Immigration in the U.S.
 
Program Description Seven String Barbed-Wire Fence aims to provide a balanced, informative account of the often emotionally-charged issue of Latino Immigration to the U.S. A polyphonic multimedia presentation gives a human face to the issue: different voices, independent and disunited are bound by the common theme of immigration. Photos, montages, three-dimensional installation examples, and a short video document the formidable barriers along the border environment and provide a comprehensive portrayal of the actors and arguments within the post-9/11 debate over policy reform.

Program Title ICONS AND SYMBOLS OF OUR REGIONAL HERITAGE
 
Program Description Regional artist Diana Molina will present an eclectic, multi-faceted portrayal that embodies the spirit of New Mexico's heritage through symbols and iconographic representations, sometimes with a distinctly modern twist. A photographic collection illustrates popular symbols and those less familiar. The Virgin of Guadalupe and Mimbres Rock Art are among the topics covered in a presentation that includes a blend of tradition, history, contemporary culture, and nature and socio-political subject matter. Touching on the current issues that face our borderland community, the artist's work as a photographer and exhibit curator provides a compelling representation of topics relevant to the national conversation and our place within it.
