In collaboration with Vermont Folklife, multi-media artist Juan Hinojosa will lead an evening of storytelling on the theme of newcomers and immigration. After a short tour of the exhibition Juan Hinojosa: Paradise City, visitors will be invited to share their family histories and make mini collages on the theme of “home.”
Hinojosa, the child of immigrants, makes complex collage-drawings constructed from found objects that intimately challenge greed, obsessive consumption, and the social stratification of American culture. In his art and in this event, he explores what it means to be “from” a place. Through community engagement and storytelling, Hinojosa aims to reveal the many shared experiences we all have as Americans.
This is an in-person event.
