Listening to Andrea's journey of identity and understanding her heritage was beautiful and almost in a literal way, grounding. Her installation at the University of Colorado cracked open my understanding of Colorado and filled it in with stories of complex identity and perseverance for justice and equality in Colorado, the ground beneath my own feet. Her historical art installation experience carried visitors into the history and present of the Chicano Rights Movement, and illustrated that the movements we read about in history books are never really over, and were started and carried by people just like us.
It was an honor to help document her story and work at the ATLAS Institute this summer.
