As part of the Cushing Salon Series, Martivón Galindo, PhD, professor of Latin American and Latino/a Studies at HNU, delivered a talk regarding Evocations and Re-encounters, a collection of her artwork that is currently on exhibition at the Cushing Library.
Professor Galindo spoke about her many inspirations—which include her memories of El Salvador and her experiences as an architect—and the place that art occupies in her life. She discussed the development of a series of smaller paintings that she called piezas de cama, or “bed pieces,” so named because she often worked on them at the end of the day.
“I have been sharing my life journey through images for the last thirty years,” Professor Galindo said. “I have to confess that making art is a wonderful way to live by recreating the world that may no longer exist outside, but still does within many more universes.”
