As a seventh-generation Texan and Mexican-American, Garcia’s ancestral connection to Texas land has led her to consider the ethical impact on her Tejano culture. Through the lense of her biracial heritage, Garcia aims to shed light on contemporary issues that current and future undocumented Latinxs face — such as harsh working conditions, the separation of families, and death while crossing the Mexico-U.S. border.
Evelyn Galindo is a Salvadoran artist living on the 89’ Meridian West, the geographic line connecting San Salvador, El Salvador and Madison, Wisconsin. Galindo migrated to Madison in the 1980’s as part of the diaspora of the most recent war and made her home in Wisconsin ever since.
