But in 2021, the “Mi Casa” exhibit has spilled out into the greater community of Watsonville like never before.

This year’s “Mi Casa” curator, Shirley Flores-Muñoz, said that a year of trauma and turmoil like 2020 simply called for a larger response.

“It’s not just a ritual,” she said, sitting outside the PVA gallery the day before it opened to the public.

“Mi Casa Es Su Casa: History, Loss, and Healing” is open to the public at the PVA gallery, 37 Sudden St., Watsonville.
