December 7th – January 25th | Mattie Rhodes Art Gallery

Our heart, our hope, and our identity – Our Lady of Guadalupe has been a prominent motif in the development and creation of the Mexican culture. This exhibit aims to engage in the historical, cultural, and symbolic experience that Our Lady brings to us. From the history of Juan Diego, to the Chicano movement, to the current immigrant experiences in the United State, Our Lady has served as a symbol of hope, strength, and mission to all Latinx people from diverse backgrounds. Our Lady is the glue that unifies the vast and diverse patchwork that is made up of those who support and honor her.
