This will be the first exhibit in the Bosque Gallery Series. The New Bosque Gallery at National Hispanic Cultural Center will be 730 feet in length (roughly 2 ½ times the size of a football field).  This beautiful open-air gallery space runs along the Bosque Trail to the east of the Rio Grande just south of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta Avenues.

Bosque Gallery exhibitions will be mounted on the exterior wire fencing owned by the NHCC.  Exhibitions rotate between the key program areas, and will include topics supporting the NHCC’s Mission including History and Literary Arts, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts.  The Bosque Gallery exhibits will be accessible, bilingual, and inclusive. The Bosque Trail is highly trafficked with cyclists, joggers, and walkers.  These groups of visitors include families and individuals.

There are 31 re-printable panels (48 x 60 inches each) available for each exhibition. All panels will be hung on exterior fence facing the Bosque Trail. The panels are made from ALU-PANEL, a reusable thin polycarbonate metal substrate. The panels are reusable, meaning that the vinyl printing for each exhibit can be peeled off and the panels can be re-printed with each new project.  The panels have an anti-graffiti coating and can last for many years if handled properly.

“Honest and unsparing, this book offers a detailed look at the dehumanizing immigration system that shattered the author’s family while offering a glimpse into his own deeply conflicted sense of what it means to live the so-called American dream. A heartfelt and haunting memoir just right for the current political and social climate.” -Kirkus Reviews.

“Antonia Vega, the immigrant writer at the center of Afterlife, has had the rug pulled out from under her. She has just retired from the college where she taught English when her beloved husband, Sam, suddenly dies. And then more jolts: her bighearted but unstable sister disappears, and Antonia returns home one evening to find a pregnant, undocumented teenager on her doorstep. Antonia has always sought direction in the literature she loves—lines from her favorite authors play in her head like a soundtrack—but now she finds that the world demands more of her than words.” – Goodreads.
