Museum of Boulder’s new exhibit, Voces Vivas: Stories from the Latino Community in Boulder County, Past and Present features Andrea Fautheree Márquez's thesis project, "Chicana Light," which explores the Chicano civil rights movement in Colorado. Fautheree Márquez, a Creative Industries master's student, used projection mapping to create the immersive, multimedia installation of three videos playing on their own loops.
Chicana Light also explores Fautheree Márquez's identity, political awakening and sense of pride as a Chicana woman.
Voces Vivas honors the early Boulder County Latino/a/x/e families and their histories to date. The exhibit, which is in partnership with the Latino History Project and University of Colorado Boulder's Ethnic Studies Department, builds upon the work local Latinos have been doing to preserve and share their stories.
Voces Vivas opened Feb 26 and runs through Feb 26, 2023. The exhibit was made possible with financial support from the Boulder Arts Commission, the Community Foundation of Boulder County, the Dodge Family Fund, Terrapin Care Station and the Horning Family.
