Exhibition: “No Quisiera Ser Nadie Más Que Yo Mismo (I Wouldn’t Want To Be Anyone Else)”
July 10 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
During a two-year collaboration between the nonprofit Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF) and the Literacy Through Photography (LTP) program at the Center for Documentary Studies, farmworker teens in SAF’s Levante Leadership Institute created an extraordinary collection of artwork. The SAF students worked on six LTP projects that each involved a different type of self-portraiture, from broad explorations of concepts like identity and being human to detailed reflections on personal accomplishments and goals; a selection of this work is featured in “No Quisiera Ser Nadie Más Que Yo Mismo (I Wouldn’t Want To Be Anyone Else).” Students created maps of memories and future dreams, remembered teachers and loved ones in letters, wrote poems about life’s journeys, and carefully pictured themselves as they want to be seen.
Exhibit runs through November 11.
