Join us for a new exhibit on the Gutierrez Hubbell House History & Cultural Center grounds.

Beginning December 19, 2020, "Enduring Querencias: Lost and Reclaimed Expressions of Home" shares the photos, memories, and poetry of guest curator Esther M. Garcia and other South Valley residents in a nuanced reflection on loss and resilience.

"Enduring Querencias" draws on poetry, story-telling, and visual imagery to capture the  South Valley’s cultural landscape and people. It explores how different South Valley residents answer the question: what happens when a sense of home is lost and when it is reclaimed? 

Garcia says “Creating Enduring Querencias brought me back to my roots. The observations and conversations rekindled my attachment to home, and gave me a feeling of safety, nurturing, and belonging. They are not an outsider’s perspective. I am an MA student in the Chicana and Chicano Studies department at the University of New Mexico. Born and raised in the South Valley, as a daughter of the community, I am invested and compelled to draw from the past to honor a truth born of this place, mi querencia.

The exhibit is located outdoors, along the Open Space walking trails.
