The art exhibit "Gráfica Transfronteriza" (The Cross-Border Graphics) is a group show that features the work of 15-20 Mexican and Mexican-American artists who explore their local, global, national and trans-national identity in order to talk about physical and symbolic territorial border crossing. This exhibition has been presented in Laredo, TX, Seattle, WA, and San Jose City College before coming to Folsom Lake College.
The exhibit is an initiative promoted by the Institute of Mexicans Abroad and the Mexican Foreign Ministry. The exhibition is part of the Art Festival "Barrio Roots", which originated in the community of Bell, southeast of Los Angeles as a binational forum where Mexican and Mexican-American artists sought to create a cross border dialogue. The artists explore their local, global and national identity, through street art and community murals.
The Bank of America Gallery exhibits six shows annually, including works of art by college faculty, students, local, regional, national, and international artists. The art gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12 pm to 4 pm, as well as one hour before performances and during intermission in the Harris Center lobby by the front entrance. Admission is free.
