The House on Mango Street: Artists Interpret Community
April 29, 2016 - September 25, 2016
Traveling to the NHCC from the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, this exhibition is inspired by the novel The House on Mango Street by the accomplished Mexican-American author Sandra Cisneros. The contemporary works of art on display in the exhibition highlight many of the issues facing adolescents growing up in urban areas. The intended result is for individuals from diverse neighborhoods, cities, ethnic backgrounds and walks of life to identify commonalities in their coming of age experiences.
