Closing Event for Latest SPARC Exhibit



A closing event will be held today from 5pm for the latest exhibition at Venice’s Social Public Art Resource Center. New Codex Oaxaca: Immigration and Cultural Memory has been running since June in SPARC’s Durón Gallery, located in the Old Venice Police Station at 685 Venice Blvd., Venice.

With more than one million Oaxacans having immigrated to the United States, the exhibit looks at the impact of immigration on those left behind: those who are often unable to see loved ones, husbands, mothers, and children for many years.

Special guests at tonight’s closing event  include Ruben Martinez, writer, performer and academic; Gaspar Rivera Salgado, project director at UCLA Center for Labor Research and Education Yolozee Odilia Romero Xhogosh; and Xochiltl M. Flores-Marcial.
