Register & Attend via Zoom
The Silver City Museum invites artist and researcher Diana Molina to the Silco Theatre to speak on Our Lady of Guadalupe, La Virgen Morena, her story, and her cultural significance.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most venerated symbols of our time. She emerges from a complex mixture of cultural differences which began with the Spanish and Moors, and the Conquistadors and the Aztecs. According to legend, “La Virgen Morena”, the brown-skinned Madonna, was the first miraculous apparition in Mexico soon after the arrival of the Spanish in the New World.
Diana Molina, artist, curator and author of Icons and Symbols of the Borderland, Art from the US-Mexico Crossroads (2020) was born a half mile from the boundary and serves as the Creative Director for the JUNTOS Art Association. Drawn early to Arts and Science, Molina began her career path as a software engineer in the initial stages of robotics and automation at IBM. This was followed by a decade working in Amsterdam as a photographer and writer for international magazines including Elle, Esquire, Geo, Marie Claire, National Geographic Traveler, Vogue, the book Amsterdam, Small Town Big City (1996). She has prepared photographic collections for the UT Austin Benson Latin-American Library, The Netherlands Bureau of Tourism, Greenpeace, and Gamma Press.
