Artistic and cultural creations from Mexico will be front and center this month at the Pump House Regional Arts Center in La Crosse.

The La Crosse Community Foundation awarded Pump House a $7,500 grant to support its Mexican Folk Art Collective exhibition, which runs through Nov. 4.

Organizers say the exhibition is a wide-ranging showcase of Mexican art and culture. The display showcases the art of papier mâché, pottery, sculptures, masks, textiles and corn husks from artists living in the United States and Mexico.

“Art and culture are powerful tools for bringing people together and have a unique way of opening dialogues among people of different cultural backgrounds,” said Allison Krzych, Pump House executive director. “Through sharing art and traditions, people can learn from each other, fostering a mutual respect and admiration that forms the basis of an inclusive community.”

A new solo exhibition by artist Maria Kapajeva entitled “Hear My Scream, Listen To Their Dreams” opened at Tallinn’s Draakoni Gallery on Wednesday. The content of the exhibition is strongly influenced by the gallery’s location directly opposite the Russian Embassy.

According to a press release, Kapajeva’s aim with the exhibition is to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to the continual exposure of harrowing imagery.

Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering people less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.
