Co-curators Fátima Ramírez and Paul S. Flores pay special tribute to artists who responded to the AIDS epidemic and the immigration of Central American refugees to the Mission District in the ’80s. The exhibition features artists Elizabeth Blancas, Josué Rojas, Joe Ramos, Tanya Orellana, Rafael Arana, Alexander Hernandez, and The Marigold Project.
