All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho
A Project by Borderland Collective
February 5 – October 16, 2022
All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho is a collaboration between students and staff from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. Participants curated photos from their family albums, made new photographs, and recorded their oral histories. The resulting exhibition creates a uniquely personal connection between the viewer and the families and serves as an acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworkers from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.
Hear from Borderland Collective’s curators Jason Reed and Mark Menjivar along with Luz M. Iginuez, former director of CAMP at the University of Washington, in this program presented on Jan. 29, 2022:
The exhibition was created by Borderland Collective’s Mark Menjivar and Jason Reed with CAMP staff and students including Luz Iniguez, Natalia Esquivel Silva, Orfil Olmos, Gabriela Ruiz, Moises Mendez, and Alondra Torres.
In the adjacent gallery, this contemporary exhibition is complemented by a selection of archival items from the Washington State Historical Society’s collections exploring the political and economic histories of land and labor in the region.
When the All The Sacrifices You Have Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho ends, the family photographs and oral histories will be added to the WSHS permanent collections, preserving these meaningful histories for generations to come.

Henry Art Gallery
Seattle , WA
This focused selection for the Henry’s mezzanine features recent photographs by Paul Mpagi Sepuya (b. 1982, San Bernardino, CA) that represent his interest in how pictures are made, seen, and circulated. It is presented on the occasion of Sepuya’s 2022 Monsen Photography Lecture, occurring June 17, 2022. This annual presentation brings key makers and thinkers in photographic practice to the Henry. Named after Dr. Elaine Monsen, the series is designed to further knowledge about and appreciation for the art of photography.
Paul Mpagi Sepuya (b. 1982, San Bernardino, CA) is a Los Angeles-based artist working in photography and Associate Professor in Media Arts at the University of California, San Diego. His work is in the collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Guggenheim Museums; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Studio Museum in Harlem; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. Recent exhibitions include solo presentations at Vielmetter Los Angeles and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, a survey of work at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, and a project for the 2019 Whitney Biennial. Most recently, Sepuya’s solo exhibition, Stage, was on view at Document in Chicago, and a publication co-curated and produced with TBW Books is forthcoming.

Across his artistic practice, ektor garcia (b. 1985, Red Bluff, California) challenges the hierarchies of gendered and racialized labor, combining a queer punk sensibility with the handcraft traditions of Mexico, his ancestral homeland.
In textiles, ceramics, and metalwork, frequently in combination with found materials, garcia engages vernacular and craft practices historically cast in diminutive or marginalized roles, ascribing renewed value through intimate, ritual processes. The resulting objects are hybrid in nature—both malleable and solid, dense and porous, sharp and tender—evoking the body and its labor as a source of pleasure and pain, rupture and healing. Pieces are often reconfigured; textiles are made and unmade. Undoing the knots is as important as reknotting to find new points of connection and possibility. For his exhibition at the Henry, garcia worked with faculty, staff, and students at the University of Washington’s Ceramic and Metal Arts Building to create a series of new linked-chain sculptures made in ceramic, copper, and glass. Comprised of individual, interlocking links, these chains will form a series of mutual and contingent relationships across their constitutive parts as they suspend and drape throughout the double-height volume of the gallery. Integrated among the linked-chain sculptures, garcia will install a collection of objects from his Mexico City studio, along with butterflies made of crocheted copper wire that escape the confines of the gallery and inhabit interstitial spaces of the museum. A complimentary exhibition publication will accompany the exhibition.

The Henry is pleased to present the University of Washington’s School of Art + Art History + Design Master of Fine Arts and Master of Design thesis exhibition. Throughout their programs, fine arts and design students work with advisers and other artists to develop advanced techniques, expand concepts, discuss critical issues, and emerge with a vision and direction for their own work. Henry staff conduct two studio visits and work closely with the students to facilitate their projects and prepare them for exhibition at the museum. A digital publication is produced in conjunction with the exhibition to highlight the students’ artistic endeavors and the Henry’s commitment to this exciting and important step in the students’ development as practicing artists and designers.
Kent International Festival
International Festival is a celebration of the cultural diversity represented in the greater Kent community. We believe that, through coming together and celebrating our various heritages with respect and understanding, we build a stronger and wider sense of community that is inclusive of all.
Native Arts & Cultures Foundation (NACF)
The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition at the Center for Native Arts and Cultures in Portland, Oregon. “Where the Waters Come Together” explores Indigenous perspectives of our relationships with rivers and oceans. The exhibition features Native artists responding to fundamental questions around cultural buoyancy, biodiversity protection, food sources and material necessities, and the realities of the colonial reshaping of traditional access to waterways and shorelines.
Native artists across the country have been responding to social and environmental issues that affect them and their communities. They are drawing increased attention to Native perspectives in shifting a national narrative of invisibility, misunderstanding and misappropriation. Clear in all of this work are our essential relationships to land-base. Through this lens, Native artists in the exhibition employ several mediums, including two and three-dimensional works, installations and multi-media works, moving fluidly between contemporary and traditional practices.
EXHIBITION – APRIL 22-JUNE 30, 2022
WHEN: Wednesdays-Fridays 11:00 AM-6:00 PM and Saturdays 11:00 AM-4:00 PM (PST)
WHERE: Center for Native Arts and Cultures, 800 SE 10th Ave, Portland, OR 97214
* This event is free and open to the public.
Iranian American Community Alliance
Seattle , WA
Seattle Iranian Festival is part of the Seattle Center Festál series and produced in partnership with Iranian American Community Alliance (IACA).
In 2022, Seattle Center Festál is celebrating 25 years of stories and traditions. The theme, “Where the World Gathers” links together the series of 24 free festivals presented throughout the year, each with a unique cultural focus, identity, and range of engaging activities.
In terms of COVID requirements, Seattle Center is a City of Seattle department. Thus, we are following the guidance from the City of Seattle as well as King County Public Health. Learn about Seattle Center’s health and safety protocols at our events. To protect the public, City staff and contractors are asked to be fully vaccinated.
The festival will take place in-person on Saturday, June 25 at 11am-7pm in the Armory Food & Event Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
This year’s theme is the “Celebration of Iranian Women”. It is an important moment in time to celebrate Iranian Women, especially their activities, contributions to the community they live in, and representation of Iran & Iranian.
The 16th Annual Seattle Iranian Festival is a one-day celebration of the Iranian Culture, inviting Iranian and Non-Iranians to come together under the roof of the Seattle Center Armory as part of the Festál family. All day, during the event, there are performances whether it is dance, music, or a quick speech from stage. The parameter of the Armory, there is Bazaar setting where there are vendors present selling their goods, usually handmade; while there are business owners promoting their line of business such as real-estate or insurance. Every year, there is Persian food available for purchase along with tea & pastries. There are free children’s activities all day, typically in the line of the theme of the festival. IACA, who organizes the Annual Seattle Iranian Festival, holds a table for information as well as tables alongside it selling IACA and festival merchandise and other goods.
Seattle Center Festál presents Seattle Iranian Festival in partnership with Iranian American Community Alliance (IACA). The festival brings together Iranians, Iranian-Americans, non-Iranians in celebration of the culture with poetry, music, food, tea, comedy, and more.
2006 was the first year the active members of the Iranian community joined hand-in-hand with the board members of the Iranian American Community Alliance (IACA) to organize an event that has now become the annual Seattle Iranian Festival. IACA, as an organization, came from a vision the founder, Ali Ghambari had for the future of the Iranian generation here in the greater Seattle area. As parents, they already knew their roots and maintained their heritage through their household and upbringing of their children, but what about the generation of their grandchildren? That is when Ali and a selected group of Iranians formed the IACA organization to not only bridge the gap between the Iranian and the American communities, but to create an established organization for the existing community and the next generations. IACA has remained a well-established grassroots organization dedicated to organizing its largest event of the year, Seattle Iranian Festival, while supporting other organizations and events.

Inspire Washington is YOUR cultural state-wide advocacy organization working with a coalition of people across the science/technology, heritage, and arts fields to advocate for increased resources and support at the local, state, and federal level.
During this time of crisis, science, and arts organizations are in dire need of funding for financial recovery and to restart programming. You are invited to join your local partners for in-person Cultural Futures! At the Cultural Futures, we aim to provide you with news you can use. From funding sources to advocacy opportunities, Inspire Washington staff will share all the information you need to know right now.
Together we will work on messaging the importance of our cultural work at this crucial crossroads for our state and communities. We will use our combined voices to communicate these messages to our local and state representatives for the recovery, re-establishment, and growth of science, heritage, and the arts for all of our communities.
These meetings are free and open to the community. We’ve organized them by county, so you’ll be able to connect with other cultural leaders in your area. However, regardless of where you live, pick the meeting that works best within your busy schedule.
On the agenda:
- Debrief of cultural success in the state’s legislative session, including new resources like $80 million for cultural programs and organizations
- New legislation and funding opportunities, the federal government has provided cultural programming with tremendous support over the last 18 months. What’s on the horizon and how do you become an advocate?
- Listening. What do you need and what should we ask for? And, how do you get involved? It will take a broad coalition to secure future funding.
- More information about our coalition. Do you want to be more involved in policy development and advocacy or learn about membership? We’ll plug you into future activities so that your community is represented.
