The organization recently announced grants totaling $175,000 in support of large-scale humanities programming statewide.

“The Land of Milk and Honey,” a series of multidisciplinary and multilingual arts and culture programs examining the history and legacy of migrant workers, received $20,000 through the new Humanities for All grant initiative. The programs are part of the MexiCali Biennial, a nonprofit visual arts organization created in 2006 by Gomez and fellow artist Luis G. Hernandez.
