Art Opening | Nicole Acosta: PachaMAMAS y Niñxs
Thursday, September 14, 20175:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This series of work is dedicated to mothers and children who aren’t afraid to dig their bare feet into the Earth; the best medicine for the soul when we lose our sense of home.

About the artist:
"Born and raised in Milwaukee, I have devoted my life fully as a compassionate pictoralist and my work often reflects the exploration and preservation of culture, identity, movement and oral & visual storytelling. I am inspired by travel, magical herbs and my children. I use photography as a tool to preserve my personal stories and Illustrate what I witness while navigating through motherhood, a womyn of color and as a chicana. As a Mexica womyn with two children, I seek to understand what home means for us. I teach them to dance, to use their hands, ask questions, be kind and to spend time in nature. They often teach me to slow down, have patience, play with bugs, look for the perfect walking stick and look up to the skies. My hopes for this photo project is to activate a space for mothers and their children in nature, while I document the pure exchange of love, exploration and connectedness. "
-Nicole Acosta
