MSU Global is featuring the photography of Ana Luisa Cardona, a Michigan-based artist. Part of the exhibit features an exploration in visual communication between her and the late Bay Area artist and photographer, Daniel del Solar.

Cardona is also a passionate advocate for arts education and serves as a consultant to the Michigan Arts Education Instruction and Assessment Program.

She and del Solar had gone together to Spain for two weeks and each came back with about 2,000 photos. Then in wordless emails, they whittled those down to 88 images for publication.
