Mamá Said: A Reflection on Maternal Figures

We are shaped by maternal figures in the womb and throughout life with their words, their actions, and personalities. The impact of maternal figures and the lack thereof can be seen, felt, and heard. As children, they were our world, models to look up to, with a sixth sense that made no sense to us. Throughout life, the relationship with these maternal figures evolved – some grew stronger, others fell through – yet they continued to shape us.

This exhibition, composed of artists and friends of Latino Arts, reflects on artist relationship with individuals that have played a maternal figure role in their lives. This visual reflection focuses on the stories of these relationships and the lessons learned whether they be positive or negative, verbal or nonverbal.
