Manos, Espaldas, y Blossoms — A collaborative art project by Juan Delgado and Thomas McGovern

Manos, Espaldas, y Blossoms (2017), a collaborative art project by Juan Delgado and Thomas McGovern, features pickers and packers of the citrus harvested from the working groves at the California Citrus State Historic Park. Poetry by Juan Delgado joins photographs by Thomas McGovern, where they are installed as photomurals and alternative “trail markers” along the paths through the park. An exhibition featuring the duo’s poetry and photographs of women working at the Corona College Heights Packinghouse and a chapbook with poems and hand-drawn illustrations by Delgado, based on McGovern’s photographs, are on view at the park Visitor’s Center beginning May 6, 2017.
