¡Hermandad está Floreciendo! (La Primavera Nunca Volverá a Ser Igual) is a show presented by the Young Queens on the Rise program at Mission Girls. Featuring the work of 13 Bay-Area youth artists, ¡Hermandad está Floreciendo! centers on themes of sisterhood, community, and identity. The Young Queens’ work explores how art exists within society as well as how it can create lasting and meaningful change as an activist strategy. Through experimentation with various mediums and materials, the artists invite the viewer to experience the strength and resilience of sisterhood and how individual identity and empowerment contribute to the community's flourishment and survival.
