Event Details

Pre-registration for this program has now closed. Tickets will be available at 6 p.m., once auditorium doors have opened for seating.

In partnership with the Embassy of Mexico, the Mexican Cultural Institute, and the Corcoran's Pittman Study Away Program, the Corcoran welcomes Marco Vera and Fernando Corona as Visiting Artists through its Artist in Residence program. Vera founded Mexicali Rose, a grassroots communitarian organization dedicated to providing free access to artistic media for the community youth of Pueblo Nuevo, which is located on the US/Mexico border. Corona, a neo-muralist, is among the many international artists who exhibit frequently at Mexicali Rose. 

Vera and Corona's month-long residency culminates in their public lecture during which they will discuss cultural exchanges and resulting artistic expressions created in border cities, as well as their experiences with the Corcoran community.
