El Corazón

El Corazón

There is a saying in Spanish, con el corazón en mano, which implies that someone is coming to you or welcoming you with honest and peaceful intentions. The heart with the flame signifies love and passion; some ancient American cultures believed that fire within the heart drove warriors to fierce battles, and therefore the heart was the highest gift that they could offer to their gods and goddesses.

Four hands that represent solidarity between different cultural groups frame the heart in our mural. The Latino Cultural Center (LCC) is a home for Latinos on campus as well as neighboring communities. The Center extends a warm welcome con el corazón en mano to anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge about the cultural heritage of Latino communities and promote the value of cultural diversity.
