Exhibit: Mujeres de Maiz: 20 Years of ARTivism and Herstory en L.A.

Mujeres de Maiz (MdM) and LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes (LA Plaza) welcome visitors to MUJERES DE MAIZ: 20 YEARS OF ARTIVISM AND HERSTORY EN L.A. Celebrating twenty years of visual and healing arts as well as political, social, and spiritual work that encourage women’s creativity and empowerment, Los Angeles-based collective Mujeres de Maiz has transformed LA Plaza's galleries into a living codex which brings their unique history and culture to life. Visitors are invited to experience MdM through paintings, clothing, historic photographs, ephemera, and fascinating installations, as well as an exciting array of public programing. LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes and Mujeres de Maiz encourage visitors to experience this collective’s many different parts, which are rooted in ancestral knowledge and connect the mind, body, and spirit. We honor the legacy of women’s culturally, politically, and spiritually grounded creativity, and are dedicated to empowering future generations – for the next twenty years and beyond.
