CASA FAMILIAR ANNOUNCES LOVE IS AN ACTION – AMOR EN LOS TIEMPOS DE PANDEMIA EXHIBITION AT 15TH ANNUAL DIA DE LA MUJER 

AT THE FRONT ARTE & CULTURA 

San Diego, California.  Casa Familiar is pleased to announce the exhibition LOVE IS AN ACTION – Amor en los tiempos de pandemia as part of Casa Familiar’s 15th annual Dia de la Mujer. The Dia de la Mujer exhibition will be celebrated with an opening reception on March 5, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at The FRONT Arte & Cultura (147 W. San Ysidro Blvd, 92173.)

Continuing its long tradition in San Ysidro and San Diego, Casa Familiar’s Dia de la Mujer celebration brings together a wide array of artists over several events to elevate the works of BIPOC women and non-binary artists. It is an open invitation for artists to explore relevant issues of identity, gender, politics, community and/or spirituality.

This year’s exhibition is curated by Monica Hernandez, community organizer and curator from San Ysidro, California. Monica was one of the curators for the first Dia de la Mujer exhibition 15 years ago. “LOVE IS AN ACTION – Amor en los tiempos de pandemia is an invitation to present works that reflect on our resiliency, elevate the interconnectedness of all our relations, and explore love as a movement towards other possible worlds,” said Monica Hernandez, curator of the exhibition: “It is a call to boldness and a return to love.”
