The Lynnwood Arts Commission presents documentary photographer Jennifer Arlem Molina at the Lynnwood Library Gallery.

Artist photographer Molina emigrated from Mexico to America at the age of 12. Although she grew up in Seattle, at the age of 16 she studied art in Paris which led to Molina’s pursuit of photography as an art form.

This series is a documentation of the daily life in her hometown. In this process, Molina hoped to overcome her feeling of being a tourist in her own ethnicity and build a connection to her birthplace as well as promote awareness and respect for the cultural diversity of our planet. Molina is concurrently exhibiting at Arterie Fine Arts in Naperville, Illinois and at Morpho Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.

Molina’s exhibit “Mazatlán through My Eyes” is featured at the Lynnwood Library Gallery through Feb. 21. The Lynnwood Library Gallery is free. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday (10 am – 9 pm), Friday (10 am – 6 pm), Saturday (10 am – 5 pm) and Sunday 1 pm – 5 pm). The library is closed on national holidays. The Lynnwood Library is located at 19200 44th Ave W. in Lynnwood.
