Milagros in My Pocketbook opened August 24th at The Fisher Gallery. Over the course of the exhibition I'll be sharing stories about the work.
As of late, it seems we need a miracle to fix what ails us politically and environmentally, hence the name, Milagros in My Pocketbook (Milagros is Spanish for ‘miracles’ and a reference to personal religious charms nailed to symbolic objects of prayer in the Mexican tradition). This piece, from which the exhibition takes its name, is part cynical and part heartfelt. I think things would be quite different if we carried our hearts in our pocketbooks.
