Hiding in Pain Sight

The Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery is delighted to present the work of Sofía Córdova and Dorothy R. Santos, artists in residence at San José State University, in an exhibition that will open on March 21, 2023 and go through May 12, 2023. In 2022, under the leadership of Assistant Professor Rhonda Holberton, the College of Humanities and the Arts at San José State University received a Grants for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts to support Hiding in Plain Sight. This award allowed Sofía Córdova and Dorothy Santos to dedicate time to exploring historical archives, including those found at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library at San José State University and the Japanese American Museum of San José, to produce new bodies of work.
