“This is a place for hopes and dreams”
Our Wishes | Nuestros Deseos is designed to break down the barriers between the artist and viewer while centering on community. Hopes and wishes were collected from Bemis Library community members and are represented on handmade flags created by artist Alejandra Abad in collaboration with volunteer community members.
This exhibition is the latest installment of Abad’s Our Wishes | Nuestros Deseos project which began in 2020, and has engaged and inspired multiple local communities around the Denver metro region.
