Vibrant, immersive and subtly humorous, Vistas in Color honors the sweeping desert landscapes of the U.S. and Mexico and the role that they’ve played in Latinx identity. Made of tissue paper similar to that used for piñatas, Favela’s floor-to-ceiling mural pays tribute to the places and landscapes that make us who we are.
