Morena Moderna, Contemporary Visions of Our Lady of Guadalupe
a free Chautauqua presentation
with Diana Molina
Thursday, April 2, 12 noon
Silver City Museum Annex, 302 W. Broadway
As a modern symbol of empowerment, La Virgen de Guadalupe inspires an impassioned and universal fervor. In a multi-faceted photographic portrayal, a panorama of vibrant imagery captures the spirit of the popular symbol of heritage in a contemporary cultural context. A journey that spans transnational borders visits traditional celebrations and depicts the icon's integration within the media, commercialism and politics of the day. Trading in a career as a software engineer for IBM to follow her passion as a professional photographer and writer, Diana Molina moved to Europe for a decade before settling back home in New Mexico's Mesilla Valley. Her sociological portrayals have appeared regionally and internationally. This program is sponsored by the New Mexico Humanities Council, The Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Silver City Museum Society.
