Join us for an evening with the Finding La Yarda team of artists as they discuss the process and history of the Finding La Yarda installation!

Finding La Yarda is an immersive multimedia art experience recreating a room from La Yarda, the housing unit built for Mexican American railroad workers in Lawrence, Kansas from 1920-51. Using film, sound, art, and digital storytelling practices, Finding La Yarda brings oral history to life by taking audiences on a cultural journey through time and place. Contributing Artists include Justin Favela, Ann Dean, Jonathan Christensen Caballero, Brenna Buchanan Young, Peter Jasso, and Marlo Angell.
