“Mujeres Luz” by Talavera-Ballón

Studio 24

Thursday, August 11, 2016 – Saturday, September 17, 2016

Mujeres Luz is an art exhibit dedicated to Las Patronas and migrants who travel on La Bestia inspired by the film All of Me (Llevate mis Amores).

When Talavera-Ballón saw the movie at the San Francisco Film Festival last year, he was so moved that he traveled to Veracruz, Mexico to meet and paint these incredible women.
