Broken Dreams/Sueños Rotos

Broken Dreams/Sueños Rotos

By Ximena Soza | September, 2016

Chilean born artist, poet, and educator Ximena Soza has dedicated her adult life to social justice. Ximena finds whatever avenues she can to make a difference in the community, whether she’s writing and performing with theater companies including the Milwaukee Public Theatre or using artistic expression to conduct group therapy sessions in mental health centers and schools. She has exhibited visual arts throughout the United States and Mexico and frequently contributes to Latino Arts’ annual Día de los Muertos Ofrendas display. Broken Dreams/Sueños Rotos focused on the beauty and fragility of objects such as tree branches and glass. The delicate and sometimes broken pieces came together to represent the dreams that never came to fruition, but letting go of these dreams came with a freedom to welcome new ones.
