Me Too. “I have friends in Mexico who call me a Malinchista because I chose to live in the USA!” Marianela said.
This is a show you won’t want to rush through, with so much to see, think and talk about. There’s also music in the gallery, selections from contemporary women composers curated by Nuvi Mehta, artistic director of San Diego Symphony, though I confess I was so involved with the art that I never noticed the music until afterwards. If you have time, browse through one of the two books in the gallery that contain Marianela’s written thoughts about the paintings on view. It’s a great way to top off your visit.
