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.
