Piece going to the Latination Show in Bakersfield

I am excited about a new piece I have entered into the Latination Show in Bakersfield at The Metro Galleries. With all the oranges and fruit it must be an homage to the farm workers in California. Color is the place I have always connected with Latin culture as well as the music. The opportunity arose and my Latin roots rose to the occasion. My grandmother actually attended some early protests in Los Angeles for farm workers rights, holding a Caesar Chavez sign in her hand. I also had a cousin in Mexico. Does this count? I don’t know, but I hope I celebrated Latino COLOR.
