Artist Talk - Mayela Rodriguez February 11, 2pm at AFSB
Join Mayela Rodriguez to hear how explorations of her family history led her to create her exhibition of photography, video, text, and installation art. She grew up hearing mysterious stories about a distant uncle, Aurelio Rodriguez, who lived in Cananea, Mexico and loved to pitch rocks into the Buenvavista del Cobre mine nearby. Later in life, this uncle became a professional baseball player for the Detroit Tigers. Her curiosity about Aurelio set her on a lengthy path to explore her own evolving identity through the lens of copper - "mining" her questions, thoughts, and insecurities about being a Mexican American.
