In the Sun Porch, 2020 New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellow Salvador Muñoz draws on both his Xicano identity and his social practice, which centers on queer people of color, to create a vibrant and responsive installation. Muñoz's large-scale, faux flora sculpture of Xochipilli honors the Mexican deity of flowers, rendering the god's associations with queerness explicitly visible through the material form. Throughout the time the exhibition is open, plant trimmings from Wave Hill will be collected and dried on the Sun Porch. The trimmings will be used in a public workshop with an herbalist, creating an opportunity to share remedies and resources with the community.

As a part of this Fellowship program, Muñoz participated in the 2020 Winter Workspace.
