Artist statement

Ivan Segura was born and raised in Mexico, and since moving to Columbia, he has focused on community activism and poetry. He is the Executive Director of Palmetto Luna Arts—an organization promoting Latinx art and culture in South Carolina. When he moved to the United States, he discovered that Latinx and Hispanic communities needed to be given more opportunities and a stronger voice. 
 
His project for Visiones is inspired by his two daughters and his goal as a feminist to empower Latina girls. In MIGHTY LATINAS! he hopes to show these young girls through iconography that they have the power and ability to achieve their dreams.
