The MexiCali Biennial is honored to be partnering with a NIH-SEPA grant housed at California State University, Monterey Bay along with Artists Ink (Salinas) in exhibiting youth artworks from agricultural communities that address the environment and human health through art.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Mellon Foundation.

The MexiCali Biennial is a non-profit contemporary visual arts organization that focuses on the area encompassing California and Mexico as a region of aesthetic production. The organization is migratory in nature and showcases exhibitions on both sides of the California/Mexico border. The MexiCali Biennial was originally started as a project critiquing the proliferation of international and regional art biennials and as a result, may be shown at any time and at any location. The MexiCali Biennial was conceived in 2006 by artists Ed Gomez and Luis G. Hernandez. The inaugural round of programming first took place at La Casa de la Tia Tina, an artist-run space on the border town of Mexicali, MX before traveling to Chavez Studios in East Los Angeles.

The Land of Milk and Honey is co-curated by Ed Gomez, Luis G. Hernandez, and Enid Baxter-Ryce, with April Lillard-Gomez serving as project manager.
