March 8, 2012 - On this edition of PUENTES, Emily Guerra bridges the community with regional photographer and journalist, Diana Molina and her new contemporary collection of art and photographs. Molina was invited by Deming Arts Center Board Member, Judy Welch, to display her exhibit entitled “Symbols and Icons of New Mexico” through the month of March. As part of New Mexico’s Centennial celebration, Molina says she is presenting a completely new medium she calls "Trashy Art" which ties in with the symbols of the state, and combines traditional and contemporary culture with history and nature. She will also feature a selection of prints of Mimbres Rock Art.
Molina will present a New Mexico Humanities Council Chatauqua program called "Morena Moderna, Contemporary Visions of Our Lady of Guadalupe," and other popular and well-known symbols. The lecture will be at the Deming Arts Center on Sunday afternoon, March 11th at 2:30 during a free reception from 2 to 4, followed by a discussion.
