A new-American encounter for a place in history

SATURDAY / MAY 14 / 5 PM / 459 W. 4TH St., San Bernardino, CA

Please join artist Daniel Ruanova at the Little Gallery of San Bernardino for a discussion around The Mexican Labor Agreement, a collaborative project with California State University, San Bernardino, Art and Design students. Ruanova will share his experience serving as the MexiCali Biennial Artist-in-Residence at CSUSB and the development of a series of Digital Art and Fabrication workshops and lectures, resulting in a kinetic sculpture and accompanying documentation which will be part of Ruanova’s long-term and ongoing collaborative Bracero Legacy Project. The final project will be exhibited at the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture of the Riverside Art Museum in 2023 as part of the MexiCali Biennial’s The Land of Milk and Honey.

The residency is generously supported by a Community Based Research and Establishing Community Partnership grant from the Office of Community Engagement at CSUSB, which strives to facilitate service learning, community-based research and volunteer service by engaging students, faculty and community partners in collaborative partnerships that serve the public good. 

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities,
