Please join us for the opening reception of "Tierna Tierra," an exhibition featuring sculptures and drawings by Estefania Puerta. Born in 1988 in Manizales, Colombia, Puerta immigrated to the United States in 1990. Drawing on her hybrid identity, which includes definers such as Latina, American, immigrant, and female, Puerta examines what it means to simultaneously fall into many categories while not fitting neatly into any of them. In her vibrant and fantastical artwork, Puerta embraces this chaotic brew of cultural heritage and carves out a unique identity from a mass of stereotypes and assumptions. As Puerta explains, “I am playing my own god and creating the world through my erratic reactions of identity.”
