In 2017, the Mission Cultural Center opens its doors to the artistic community to express a reaction to Presidential Election of 2016.
Faced with rhetoric of fear, division, racism, misogyny, intolerance, and populism from the elected government, artists from diverse communities raise a voice validating our right to exercise the First Amendment.
Artists from various backgrounds such as; minorities, immigrants, women, veterans, lgtbq, youth, and seniors are intersecting a spectrum of messages that aim to reclaim human dignity. We are not apologizing for existing, and consider the best form of resistance by existing precisely as we are rejecting the hegemonic supremacy of the elected government.
I’m super proud and excited to be part of this group exhibit, amazing work and great people. Thank you for providing this platform and for all your support, Angelica Rodriguez!
The Mission Cultural Center starts 2017 by providing a space where arts and activism play an important role in our community the way it did 40 years ago.
We welcome you to join us at the opening reception January 20, 2017 from 6pm-9:30pm. A mini Illusion show with special guests, muralists, activist, and musicians will create art as part of our activities.
