Modern Folktales with Maria Baca

Literary, visual and performing artist Maria Baca will share her stories and her artwork in a fun program on myths and folktales.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Global Education Center and the Line Breaks Literary Reading Series will kick off their 2018-2019 program series, History, Culture, Myths & Folktales, with performance and lecture from acclaimed New Mexican painter and poet Maria Baca. Focusing on symbolic language and its use in writing, the event will include a collaborative performance of an original folktale that integrates Baca’s poems and art and explores themes of feminine strength, self-actualization, history and ecology. Working collaboratively with local actors and musicians, Baca will combine spoken poetry, “video wardrobes,” and images from her colorful paintings and photographs projected as big as life. Together, they will tell a captivating story that draws from her experiences as a community artist in New Mexico and from her rich cultural heritage. There will be ample opportunity for audience inquiry and discussion.

History, Culture, Myths and Folktales is made possible with support from Humanities Tennessee, an affiliate of National Endowment for the Humanities, Tennessee Arts Commission, South Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and Metro Arts: Nashville Office of Arts and Culture.
