6 p.m. Student Union Ballroom (SUB), Room Hatch D. Casita Nepantla will host a lecture by Chicano artist Jake Prendez as well as a reception to open his art exhibit.

This exhibit will run through May 13 in the Student Diversity Center of the SUB. It is free and open to the public.
Prendez’s visit to Boise State and his art exhibit were made possible through partial funding by the university’s art department and the Center for Educational and Multicultural Opportunities.
Casita Nepantla opened in fall of 2016 and is a space that celebrates Latinx and Latin American culture, engages in student recruitment and retention, and provides research grants for students and faculty who are exploring issues dealing with Latinx and Latin Americans.
