Join Frost Art Museum staff members, Maryanna G. Ramirez and Amy Galpin, for a conversation with artists Itzel Basualdo, Hugo Crosthwaite, and Judithe Hernández. Featured in the Frost Art Museum’s exhibition, Otros Lados, these artists bring distinct perspectives to Mexican and Mexican American experiences. Inspired by the required text, A Dream Called Home by Reyna Grande, for FIU’s First-Year Experience Program, Otros Lados weaves narratives of historical memory, personal experience, and social justice. Following the conversation, attendees will be encouraged to ask questions.
