Celia Herrera Rodriguez

Artist Bio:
Celia Herrera Rodriguez (Xicana/O'dami) is a two-spirit visual and performing artist and educator whose work reflects a full generation dialogue with Xicana/o, Indigenous Mexican and North American Native thought, spirituality, and politics. She teaches in the Chicano Studies program at the University of California, Berkeley, and is an Adjunct Professor in the Diversity Studies program at California College for the Arts of the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds an MFA in painting from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. Herrera's work has been exhibited internationally. She has also collaborated as the conceptual, scenic and costume designer for Cherríe Moraga's theater works including: The Hungry Woman (2005), Digging Up the Dirt (2010), and La Semilla Caminante/The Traveling Seed (2010). In 2011, her drawings — a series of contemporary Xicana codices — appear in Moraga's new collection of writings: A Xicana Codex of Changing Consciousness (Duke University pss).
