After the round table our friends from MOA will give a tour of the Museum to the attendees. Where they will enjoy the Xicanx Art Exhibition, the artists in this exhibition are dreamers and change makers. They are of Mexican American heritage—self-identified as Xicanx (the neutral grammatical gender of Chicano/a). The term transcends borders and gender to encompass the Xicanx people’s multi-generational experiences of social difference.
