2005 Art and Change Grant – $2,124

Michelle will conduct a series of arts workshops for members of the Las Gallas collective to create visual works that will inspire the collective’s performance piece, “Kidnapping Frida and Che” about the portrayal of Frida Kahlo and Ernesto “Che” Guevara in popular culture. The pieces will be shared in an exhibit encouraging a larger community to explore issues of appropriation of identity, immigration and growing up in the US.
