About the event

In the fall of 2019, visual artist Shelby Head worked alongside San Luis Land Rights Council members collecting stories from the beneficiaries of the 1843 land grant issued under the Mexican land grant system. These seven recorded stories will become large wall projections in the 2020 exhibition titled La Sierra at the Cloyde Snook Gallery on the campus of Adams State University from 1/13-2/6 (gallery is open from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm). 

An opening reception for the exhibition will be from 5:00 - 7:00 pm on Friday, January 17th and will include the grant heirs' personal stories concerning the historic land rights to La Sierra.

The centerpiece for the exhibition is a large-scale shrine designed and installed by San Luis sculptor, Huberto Maestas, Adams State class of 1984.

There is no need to register for the exhibition. You can come visit show whenever you want within gallery hours until it closes on Feb 6. We would love to see you at the reception!
