The exhibition will be on view April 18 – June 13, 2015 and a symposium will take place on May 23, 2015.

Alumni presenting work in the exhibition include Jill Bedgood (MFA in Studio Art, 1983); Candace Briceno (BFA in Visual Art Studies, 1994); Susi Brister (BA in Studio Art, 2001); Megan Stroech (BFA in Studio Art, 2008); and James Huizar (BFA in Studio Art, 2007) and Claudia Zapata (BA and MA in Art History, 2005/2009) of Puro Chingon Collective.
