FAIRFAX, Va. - Sept. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Soraida Martinez has been speaking her truth and encouraging others to speak their own truth on intolerance, racism, injustice, sexism and stereotyping – as a way to achieve self-empowerment. This art talk and exhibition has evolved from over 21 years of the artist’s observations (and self-evaluation) on the issues that confront contemporary society, both in the U.S. and abroad.

These are some of the Verdadism artwork with social commentaries that will be on exhibit: Please Stop Calling Us Minorities! We All Know That's an Unfair Label With Negative Connotations; La Latina; Women Working Together; The Weeping Puerto Rican Cuatro Player; Between Two Islands; Puerto Rican Stereotype: The Way You See Me Without Looking At Me; and, Rage: It’s My Body.

This exhibition in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month is sponsored by George Mason University’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Education. The artwork will be on display at Mason Hall Gallery from Friday, October 4th to Friday, October 11th.   The opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, October 4th, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.  This event is open to the students and faculty of George Mason University, as well as the general public.
