Curated by Diana Molina, organized by Juntos Art Association and previously exhibited by Austin’s Mexic-Arte Museum and the University of Texas at El Paso, the group show “Icons & Symbols of the Borderland” comprises more than 100 works of art that address “socio-political issues, immigration topics, collective memory, philosophical ideals, religious iconography, the environmental landscape, and food culture.” Uniting 25 artists — including local mainstays such as Cesar Martínez, Ricky Armendáriz and Victoria Suescum — the exhibition runs through December and comes into focus this week through an artist panel sure to shed light on the complexities of the U.S.-Mexico border.
