Artist Arnold Brooks was born in the Panama Canal Zone, a U.S. occupied territory in Panama that existed from 1903 to 1979.  Growing up with a Panamanian mother and an American father, Arnold’s complex identity is reflected in his art.

Mona Lisa Garcia Stagg was born in Panama City, Panama.  She discovered her passion for telling people’s stories while studying at Villanova University in 2016, where she filmed and edited Limbo, a documentary on West African migrants awaiting asylum in a small town in Italy.
