California, since its conception as a state in 1850 has been a mecca for freethinkers and pioneers. Prior to that it was Mexican and Indigenous; a land of mestizos “mixed race” peoples who negotiated identity between many worlds. California at the edge of the United States continues to maneuver this ever-changing world of migration and the elusiveness of the American Dream. In “Artist, Advocates, Dreamers” artist as free- thinkers bring the complexity of migration and identity to our attention through their advocacy and art.
