Event Description

Join us for the Boulder opening reception for Motus Theater’s art exhibit at the Dairy Arts Center entitled, UndocuAmerica: Reclaiming Our Presence. 

This UndocuAmerica art exhibit at the Dairy’s McMahon Gallery invites visitors to engage with art that centers undocumented community members’ stories through a wide variety of mediums including photography, illustrations, films, and animations. At 6PM, as part of the opening remarks, hear Alejandro Fuentes-Mena share his empowering autobiographical monologue, ““Deport Me” in which he celebrates the gifts he and his family are to this country.

Exhibition Opening 5pm - 8pm: At a time when people who are undocumented are often demonized as “other” for political gain, the art in this exhibit invites us to look past our differences and find our shared humanity. Regardless of individual beliefs about immigration policy, this project allows visitors to learn more about the impact of these policies on the lives of undocumented families.

Opening Reception This UndocuAmerica exhibit showcases murals of Motus UndocuAmerica monologists created by Edica Pacha. And artwork, developed in collaboration with Motus Theater, for Motus immigration programming by Sebastián Sifuentes.

This exhibition and performance kicks off Motus’ programming series “There no THEM in U.S., a celebration of art and stories that help US in the U.S recognize our shared humanity through powerful personal stories at the intersections between immigrant rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, racial justice and criminal legal reform.
