Images of Resilience: Chicano Art and its Mexican Roots

Art Show, Museum
"Images of Resilience" explores the development of Chicano art, from its beginnings in Mexican art of the early 1900s, to the Chicano movement of the 1960s and ‘70s, to its relevance today. The exhibition reflects how Chicano art has influenced community building, history making, and cultural citizenship for Mexican-Americans and Chicanos. It is split into two distinct gallery sections: one focusing on Mexican art trends in the early 1900s and the other featuring art that arose from the Chicano civil rights movement of the 1960s and ‘70s.
