Homegirl Holds It Down: Alum Korina Esther Moreno Curates All-Female Art Exhibition

Monday, March 02, 2020

EL TECOLOTE (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Walking her talk, Moreno — a 23-year-old artist who earned her Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications Design at SF State last fall — is curating “Hey Homegirl: It’s Time We Reclaim Our Space,” an all-female multidisciplinary art show meant to lend visibility and representation to female artists, many of whom use their art to tell their own stories. As of press time, Moreno has 12 artists confirmed for the show. And though the show will debut on March 14 at Acción Latina’s Juan R. Fuentes Gallery, the inception for the exhibition began when Moreno was still a student at SF State.

As part of her Senior Design Project class, Moreno had ambitions to expand Chika Xicana — a brand she launched during her sophomore year in college after being exposed to a variety of women-run social media brands that promote healing, body positivity and empowerment for women.
