Artist Ernesto Yerena
Ernesto Yerena's art reflects his observations of the views and interactions between the Mexican communities living on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. His work depicts his frustrations with the oppression in his community as well as creating work in solidarity with the community in defense of dignity and rights. Through his art, he brings political concerns to light with subject matter that depicts cultural icons, rebels and everyday people voicing their stance against oppression. Highly recognized for his activism, Yerena is the founder and curator of the Alto Arizona Art campaign (2010) as well as a founding member of the We Are Human campaign (2009).
Yerena's work will be displayed the whole week in the Union Building.
