Luis Tapia Sculpture as Sanctuary

October 27, 2017 – April 15, 2018

For many, sanctuary can signify a holy place, a refuge, a ritual, a haven, or an oasis. It can also mean home, family, community, religion, and identity. The exhibition, “Luis Tapia: Sculpture as Sanctuary” engages and critiques contemporary global themes of Sanctuary and highlights the hand-carved masterworks by Luis Tapia (b.1950), a Chicano artist from Nuevo México.
