In this episode, Mel Dominguez, visual artist and owner of Galería Mitotera talks about how the gallery came to be, its purpose for South Tucson and the nation-wide arts and culture community, and some of their favorite shows at the gallery–including a powerful tribute to the migrant lives lost in the desert. Mel also talks about growing up in Los Angeles and their artistic trajectory, moving to Tucson in 2007, working as a tow-trucker and the impression they got–here’s a hint, The Walking Dead is mentioned! Mel also tells us about their upcoming dreams involving SpaceX and the #dearMoon project. We close with Mel’s message to nonbinary, trans and LGBTQ youth in general, but to catch all that good stuff you have listen to the full-length podcast!
