Maria Vasquez Boyd & Miguel Morales
Migrant Farm Workers Project
Topic: the Migrant Farm Workers Project MFP began in 1984 when then Legal Aid Managing Attorney Suzanne Gladney (now retired from Legal Aid and MFP) discovered that many of her rural western Missouri Immigration clients worked in the apple orchards along Highway 24 in Lafayette County. She soon realized their needs extended well beyond immigration applications for family members. Although they had housing, their health status was poor and their access to services very limited. Their children felt lost and often overlooked in school, and pictured no future beyond life in the fields and orchards. They existed, literally and figuratively, on the margins of the communities where they lived and labored.

Carter Art Center

AN EXHIBIT OF WORKS FROM THE GRAPHIC DESIGN MFA ALUMNI OF THE VERMONT COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS. Crossroads are any point of intersection of two or more paths that lead off in different directions, or converge into a focal point of decision and creation, where people, ideas, and events can come together, or depart. This exhibition is the visual expression of such as interpreted by the Graphic Design MFA Alumni of the Vermont College of Fine Arts (vcfa.edu). We're honored to host it in the heart of the country near the Crossroads of Kansas City, Missouri, in the Carter Art Center of Metropolitan Community College Penn Valley.

About Carter Art Center

In March 2003, MCC-Penn Valley dedicated the Anna & Kemper Carter Center for Visual Arts and Imaging Technology. This beautiful structure provides classrooms, computer labs and fine arts studios with natural light. The gallery features exhibits that educate, challenge and inspire. Anna's Room is a wonderful place to relax. Outside, a stainless steel sculpture by Rita Blitt, "Black Box VII: Aspects of Nature II," is permanently installed. The Carter Art Center provides quality arts education to students in midtown Kansas City, preparing them to transfer to baccalaureate institutions. It provides employers

with workers who are well-prepared for jobs such as graphic designers and digital prepress technicians. It also provides a place for the community to gather to celebrate and enjoy the visual arts. Operational costs for the Carter Art Center are greater than those of a traditional community college art department. We are seeking support from the community we serve so the Center can provide the highest quality art programming for students and the community. To help accomplish this the Friends of the Carter Art Center will provide financial and community support so the college can continue to offer quality art exhibits, scholarships, and growth opportunities for arts education.
