Las Gallas on WHYY Radio!

Highlighting the shared stories and struggles of immigration and migration within the Asian and Latino communities, Illuminate Me is the multi-sensory culmination of a cross-cultural exploration through a series of community workshops in which participants shared personal histories and journeys through a range of text, sound and image-based storytelling activities. Lanterns created by workshop participants are featured in the exhibition alongside new mixed-media artwork by Las Gallas members Julia Lopez, Magda Martinez, and Michelle A. Ortiz accompanied by an original soundscape by Alex Shaw.
