Outdoors on large-scale, 8' x 10' panels, "Undocumented Heart" features stories by the day laborers of their journeys, sacrifices, and resilience, splashed against a spine-chilling historical timeline that reveals colonial and US actions in Mexico and Central America. Indoors, the exhibition presents artworks in paint, textile, and photography by day laborers and artists Marion Coleman, Ramon Carrillo, and Jeff Norman.
