Hope & Loss—A Border Elegy: Recent Work by Beatriz Vasquez

This exhibition is supported in part by IUPUI’s Welcoming Campus Innovation Fund, with additional support provided by the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute.

Employing the Mexican folk-art technique of papel picado, where intricate designs are cut into colorful sheets of tissue paper, Herron alumna Beatriz Vasquez pushes the boundaries of this widely used art form to address the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

An artist’s talk given by Tsherin Sherpa and an opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 11.

Vasquez will moderate a panel discussion titled “Migration: A Force of Nature—A Basic Human Need”
