EXHIBITION IN THE MAYOR’S OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AFFAIRS’ IMMIGRANT HISTORY WEEK

Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders will participate for a third year in the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs' Immigrant History Week. We are proud to present an exhibition entitled "Promesas y Esperanzas del Siglo XXI. 'El Gobierno del Cambio' y el Éxodo Mexicano a los Estados Unidos 2000-2006” (Promises and Hopes of the 21st Century: The 'Government of Change' and the Mexican Exodus to the United States 2000-2006). Mexico elected a new government in the year 2000. Despite the promises of "change", during those six years, Mexico experienced an enormous exodus of its citizens to the United States. This exhibition, curated by Enrique Gonzalez Ibarra, Mano a Mano's Director of Community Arts, seeks to portray the artistic responses from both sides of the border to this historic period. All artists are welcome to submit entries for this exhibition. Those wishing to participate in this exhibition should contact Mano a Mano soon to see the specific requirements. Deadline for final submission of work samples is March 31, 2007.

The exhibit will run from April 17 - May 20, 2007. at the International Center in New York, 50 West 23rd Street, 7th Floor (Between 5th & 6th Avenues).
