We find ourselves in a precarious time, when the most vulnerable in our community are in danger.
It is at times like these that artists lead us in resistance and remind us of the strength and resiliency of our community.
The 30th anniversary of Solo Mujeres at the Mission Cultural Center marks a time to reflect on this enduring legacy of creativity and of the power of mujeres envisioning new possibilities for our community. This year’s exhibition is a celebration honoring resistance, which takes many forms, but is rooted in the revolutionary act of love.
