Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) celebrates Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a seventeenth-century Mexican poet and playwright whose writings epitomized the struggle of the individual woman. In this exhibit, MECA celebrates this great feminist poet by featuring artwork inspired by her theological perspective that human beings are made up of “qualities of angel, plant, and beast”.
Displaying artists include Alma Soto, Lorena Alvarez, Yolanda Buccio, Ruth Sosa Bailey, Renee Rodriguez, Artista Elisabet, Melanie Kane, Diana Muniz, and Lilibeth Andre.
The exhibit runs from March 18th through April 29th and admission is free. Opening reception takes place March 18th at 8 p.m.
