“Playtime” is an exhibit of toys and childhood fun. Burruel hopes the images will bring the viewer joy and happy memories. Manny Burruel is a printmaker and painter. His subject matter is often autobiographical. He likes to use objects and images that represent his past and may trigger a personal connection for the viewer.
Raquel Denis is a softly powerful singer-songwriter and poet based in Akimel O’otham land. Her heart-centered folk songs range from meditative to visceral—songs about an ailing mother, insurrections at the U.S. capitol and parables of oak trees offer raw expressions of grief, worth, forgiveness, defiance and familial love. At the center of her work is honest lyricism and the healing power of music.
