Entre Palmas by Lorena Molina

Molina’s How Blue examines how the complex textile history of El Salvador is embedded with the persecution of its indigenous people. By layering photographs with pieces of fabric reminiscent of her childhood, she makes a connection to her displacement of home.

Very Tired by Virginia Sperry

With rusted steel, fibers, polymer clay, and objects found on her farm, Sperry creates sculptures that explore the notions of change and destruction. Accompanying these sculptures are photos of rusted items and materials that she includes to capture, and ultimately pause, the changes of impermanence.

Chicago Man by Lyle Kleinhans

Chicago Man by Lyle Kleinhans
