Summer Salon Series will discuss memory, history and memorial. The installation "Something to do with Crossing" features recreations of headstones from an "immigrant cemetery" in El Centro, California and audio recordings based on actual testimony from migrants.
Artists Misael Diaz and Amy Sanchez of the Cognate Collective will give will discuss their installation, and the questions they considered during its construction. The Quilt Conversation will create a quilt that recalls the 54-ton NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt during eight evenings throughout the summer.
