How can art agitate for progressive social and environmental change?

In the summer of 2018, Heritage Garden interns and leaders created an art installation for the various satellite gardens by repurposing and painting glass bottles.

The theme of this collective art project is based on the Latino Cultural Center’s concept of Social and Environmental Pollinators. It will build on previous work done by a group of Latinx artists in the fall of 2016 to celebrate the LCC’s 40th Anniversary. 

UIC Heritage Garden interns worked with lead artist, Sarita Hernandez, from the National Museum of Mexican Art. Sarita specializes in printmaking, collage, and various mixed media art

What worries you (besides your studies and paying student loans)?
What enrages you? What are you passionate about? What are you hopeful about? How do you see yourself as agent of change?
