Artes de México en Utah

Building communities and a sense of belonging united by cultural connections through the appreciation and creation of art.

 

Art in all its expressions is the pathway to reflect on our past and present to find commonalities among one another.

Multiculturalism is the core value of our programs. We reflect on historical and current perspectives

that include the U.S. history andthe parallels between Mexico/Latin America and the U.S.

IX Annual Sor Juana Prize 2021

Nuestra misión es promover la apreciación del arte mexicano en Utah con el propósito de crear comunidad unidas a través de la cultura.

Usamos la belleza del arte mexicano para reflexionar, analizar y unificar a miembros de la comunidad de todas las edades y etnias para aprender más sobre México, su historia, cultura y sociedad.

Este premio se realiza en honor a Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, O.S.H.
(1651-1695), una monja mexicana del s. XVII, quien fuera una de las más brillantes intelectuales, poetas, y autoras de su tiempo y en la actualidad. Sor Juana fue nombrada la “décima musa”
en su época debido a su ingenio al escribir poesía, así como por sobresalir en filosofía, música, y las ciencias. También fue conocida por defender los derechos de las mujeres y las minorías,
por lo que ella continúa siendo una inspiración hoy en día. El trabajo de

Sor Juana se enseña en escuelas y universidades de habla-hispana alrededor del mundo.

Este concurso brinda una gran oportunidad a aquellas personas que escriben y se inspiran en el idioma español, la segunda lengua mas hablada de Utah. La inspiración de los participantes suele ser la sed por la justicia social, su identidad, la naturaleza, sus recuerdos, emociones, cultura, e historia, así como reflexiones sobre la vida y la muerte.

 

Gracias a los concursantes galardonados de poesía y prosa. Esta
publicación es el resultado de su inspiración, causa motivante
para muchos en nuestra comunidad.

Sabores de mi Patria
Flavors of my Homeland

In partnership with Wasatch Community Gardens, we would like to acknowledge this beautiful artwork specially created for our project "Flavors of my Homeland", by the Mexican, Utah local artist Veronica Perez. The significance of this piece is here described by her: "At the center is the maíz. It is growing from a yollotl with a corn kernel inside. In nahuatl yollotl means heart, but it can also mean the seed of something, and maíz is the “heart” of the milpa.
