Food Justice features murals of Fresno County March 17

Filmmakers, authors and artists Carissa Garcia, Teresa Gaytan Flores, Cecilia Aranaydo and Silvia Garcia will present a workshop, “Landscape, Mythology and Memory: Reconstructing Chicana Narratives in the Central Valley through Muralism,” from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, March 17, in the Agriculture Mechanics building (Room 102) at Fresno State. The workshop, which will also celebrate their forthcoming book on the murals of Fresno County, will help participants re-mythologize iconic images and local stories of women against the backdrop of politics of the Central Valley landscape. The free, public event is sponsored by the departments of Anthropology, Women’s Studies, Chicano and Latin American Studies and the College of Social Sciences. Parking is $3 for a day permit from dispensers at the Barstow Avenue entrance kiosk (north of Barstow, across from the Grosse Industrial Technology building). INFO: Dvera Saxton at 559.278.0887or dsaxton@csufresno.edu.
