Revolution in the Fields Student Art Contest

In 2022, the Bakersfield College Social Justice Institute initiated a student art contest related to the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields. With support from the Arts Council of Kern BIPOC grant, the Bakersfield College Social Justice Institute was able to create a call for student art submissions in conjunction with the 4th annual Jess Nieto Memorial Conference. Below you may view the student winning submission and two honorable mentions.

Please explore more local BIPOC artists and culture on the Bakersfield College Social Justice Institute's YouTube Channel.
