Nopalera Artist Collective is a cooperative of artists from various different cultures and backgrounds, who thrive and grow in the harsh desert we call home – Utah. We come together to amplify the voices and experiences of the communities we belong to.
“Eres Poderosx / You Are Powerful” is a collection of works by eight different artists from eight different homelands: Izzy Fernandez, David Peralta, Ella Mendoza, Jorge Arellano, Veronica Perez, Andrew Alba, Lola Reyes and Melissa Alvarez. This exhibit aims to amplify the voices of those in our communities that are often the strongest among us, yet can go unheard and unrepresented – our youth. We want to remind the young voices in our community that they are strong and powerful and that they deserve to be heard.
This exhibit features the lived experiences of youth, migrants and people from all parts of Latin America. It is a love letter and testament to the power of past, present and future generations.
