The Branigan Cultural Center, 501 N. Main St., is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, "The Voice of a Two Spirit," which features the artwork of indigenous artist Marcy Angeles.
This highly personal exhibit presents artwork by Angeles that reflects her life experiences as an Indigenous Two Spirit. “The Voice of a Two Spirit” is on view from May 6, 2022, to July 16, 2022.
The exhibition presents artwork by Marcy Angeles, a regional artist who explores her life experiences as an Indigenous Two Spirit through her art. Angeles’ artwork presents her conflict of living within a culture and power structure dominated by white Christian men, while honoring her Indigenous heritage and embodying two gender spirits within one human body.
By embracing her Two Spirit being, Angeles acknowledges the continuum of gender identity and its expression through gender fluidity. Angeles’ goal is to heal herself from traumas she has experienced, and by doing so, offer healing to others.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Saturday. There is no admission fee.
The museum is accessible via RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1, Stop 1. For information, visit the Museum System website at https://www.las-cruces.org/Museums or call 575/541-2154.
