A little more about this event: Pablo Serrano is the Library’s fifth artist-in-residence. He is a photographer for the Colombian news agency Agencia Prensa Rural, which was created by peasant farmer organizations.  During the past ten years Serrano has taken thousands of photos documenting civil resistance in the Colombian social conflict.

A collection of Mr. Serrano’s work has been touring California. The Library at Holy Names University is privileged to host an installation of Mr. Serrano’s work through the Fall Semester, 2011. Thanks to Alyise Bernardino and Jessica Escobar of the Center for Social Justice and Carrie Rehak, Director of Campus Ministry, for their roles in making this happen.
