Mujeres de Maiz (women of corn), is a collective of women artists from throughout the nation. Like the many colors of corn, we are a diverse network of women who work to effectively communicate the spirit of our creativity through visual and performing arts in our local communities and cultural educational events/conferences.
Beginning in 1997, Mujeres de Maiz united inter-generational Chicana/Latina artists for a one-night exhibit and performance event. The response was overwhelmingly positive and as a result a total of four events were organized in that same year. A grassroots poetry & arts magazine or 'zine' began its's first of many and a one-year anniversary documentary on Mujeres de Maiz was produced.
Since its birth, Mujeres de Maiz continues as a growing network/organization due to the empowering feeling of women's voices and images.... www.mujeresdemaiz.net
