A colación is a flower that grew on the bushes outside of my grandmother’s house in El Salvador. I grew up in a multigenerational home with my mother, aunt, and grandmother who made up the matriarchs of our household. In 1980, they immigrated to the United States, along with the rest of my maternal family, in order to escape the civil war in El Salvador. This project is an homage to the immigrants who came to the United States in search of a better life. It is a tribute to Salvadoran women.
