"Edible Immigrants – Fruits & Vegetables of Mexico"

In light of all the ugly rhetoric about immigration lately, veteran San Antonio photographer Al Rendon, who is arguably known best for his iconic portraits of Selena, has turned his attention to immigrants that no one seems to have a problem with: Mexican fruits and veggies. His artist’s statement explains, “Like their human counterparts, some [of these fruits and vegetables] have been here so long, they are considered local,” while “others are such newcomers, they haven’t yet found their place in American society.” Using these edible items as powerful symbols, Rendon is able to look closely at what it means to fit into American society and what some of the barriers to peaceful acceptance of diversity might be. Following the opening reception, "Edible Immigrants" remains on view by appointment through November 18.
