The Akillian Gallery Presents Tomas Alejo
November 8–December 10
Now on display at The Akillian Gallery on our Canton Campus, the Tomas Alejo exhibition displays a selection of photographs in recognition of National Native American Heritage Month. The gallery is open to visitors Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through December 10 and by appointment. Find more information on the Gallery’s website: www.massasoitakillian.com.
Tomas Alejo (Chicano/Huasteca) is a photographer and clinical social worker. Tomas was born and raised in Watsonville, CA, and members of his family, including himself as a child, were active organizers with the United Farm Workers union. He blends life experience, participation, and a background in social justice and activism, so his photographic images relate an intimate story to the viewer. He is also an accomplished tattoo artist. Tomas’ work highlights indigenous cultures, ceremony, and resistance.
This exhibition is made possible with the generous support of The Massasoit Foundation and Academic & Student Affairs, and is sponsored by the Native American Awareness Collaborative at Massasoit, consisting of Community Education, The Massasoit Film Society, Student Life, the Massasoit Libraries, administrators, faculty, and staff.
Massasoit Community College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions related to access for this event, please contact Eunice Hurd in advance of your participation or visit.
