Rosalia Torres-Weiner

Charlotte, North Carolina

I am an artist, activist and community leader in Charlotte, NC.

My art captures the themes, colors and rich symbolism of my native home of Mexico. In 2010, I shifted the focus of my work from commercial art to art activism, after witnessing the repeated injustices and dysfunction of our immigration system. My work is featured in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum has been exhibited in venues including the McColl Center for Arts and Innovation, Levine Museum of the New South, Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art, the Leyland Gallery at Georgia College, UNCC’s Projective Eye Gallery, the City of Raleigh Museum, the Latin American Center for Arts Gallery, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and the Mexican Cultural Institute at the Mexican Embassy in Washington D.C. My public murals celebrate the rich history as well as the changing demographics of the South.
