Village Art

Village Art is a group show displayed at the FMAAA Art Center for the month of September 2023. This exhibition featured 2D and 3D work by artists from the Fort Madison Mexican village including Sheri Lozano-Dobbs, Jacob Cangas, Trevor Prado, Nikki Ponce and Renay Domingez. The FMAAA Art Center, located at 825 Ave G in Fort Madison, was very excited to host this show during the month that also included the annual Fort Madison Mexican Fiesta. This exhibition represents a collaboration by members of the Mexican Fiesta Committee along with the Art Center to draw attention to an important part of Fort Madison’s cultural heritage. The exhibit featured vibrant contemporary work by artists whose families started and grew in the village. Each artist approaches their studio practice from a different perspective. The FMAAA Art Center was excited to bring their work together to be in conversation with each other, reflecting in some ways on a common heritage and shining an enduring light forward on futures still unfolding. The FMAAA expresses gratitude to the Fort Madison Mexican Fiesta and the Latin American Club, LULAC 304 for their sponsorship and coordination of this month’s exhibition.
