Marking the grand opening of the expanded Center for Latino Policy Research (CLPR) at the University of California, Berkeley, the Center presents Poetic Justice, an art exhibit by renowned muralist and fine artist Juana Alicia, from Monday, Feb. 27th through Thursday, March 30th. There is no cost for admission. CLPR, now entering its 28th year, has expanded and now has a new space for the integration of the arts, interdisciplinary research, and policy. The Poetic Justice/Justicia Poética exhibit will feature more than 14 of Juana Alicia’s prints, paintings, and sculpture – a mix of new pieces never exhibited and earlier art works.
With Latino communities experiencing disenfranchisement and fears of deportation, the Center has created a unique place to foster innovation and creativity, and to synergistically advance knowledge that elevates Latino cultural, social, and political power. For the opening series of events in 2017, the center has turned to Latino artists, cultural visionaries and intermediaries. The goal is to foster conversations that bolster enthusiasm and energy through both reflection and action.
Hours: Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Closed Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
Part of a month-long Open House titled Arts in Our Community: Latinx Visions for Social Justice
