Prof. Armando Solórzano on Invisible No More: Latinxs Dignity March in Utah, a photo documentary exhibit on display now through Oct. 15 at Mestizo Coffeehouse in SLC. In commemoration of Hispanic/Latinxs Heritage Month 2023, this photo-travel exhibit is the work of five Latinx photographers who captured more than 5,00 images of the march, which nearly 50,000 people attended. Solórzano collected the speeches made by city officials, religious leaders, and community members at the march, as well as an archive of interviews, newspaper clippings, and an analysis surrounding the event. The exhibit depicts the different actors, laws, motives, and accomplishments of the march. Each of its 60 frames contains four or more pictures, including a caption in English and Spanish.
