Join us at the Agriculture Museum in Santa Paula on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 2 p.m. for a Gallery Talk with Artist Lino Martinez. Admission is free for members, $5 for nonmembers.
Lino Martinez will discuss his latest body of work focused on the realities faced by the Latinx farming communities of the United States today. “Farming Youth” focuses on the migratory realities of the farm workers whose labor sustains the United States’ agricultural economy, which relies on millions of people countrywide; often undocumented men, women, and children working extensive hours each day to make a meager living wage.
Curated by Erika Hirugami, MAAB., Founder & CEO of CuratorLove, this moving exhibit focuses on Martinez’s latest body of work, “Campesinos y Colores.” Series which reveals the harsh realities phased by the Latinx farming communities of the United States today.
Farming Youth is on display June 15, 2019 to August 18, 2019.
Also on display is In the Fields of the North/En los Campos del Norte featuring the evocative and powerful photography of David Bacon.
