In the early years, the 1960s and 70s of the Chicano art movement, work created was predominately noncommercial and community-oriented, often recapturing the cultural history and political struggles of the time.
The exhibition "Lasting Legacies: A Tribute to the Chicano Art Movement" provides a glimpse into some of the founders of this national artistic expression.
LA Plaza salutes Pacific Standard Time and joins the many cultural institutions across Southern California in celebrating the birth of the L.A. art scene.
The Lasting Legacies exhibit is part of LA Plaza's salute to Pacific Standards Time's programming.
The art exhibit feature works by some of the Chicano art pioneers: Carlos Almaraz, Michael Amescua, Judy Baca, David Botello, Barbara Carrasco, Oscar Castillo, Harry Gamboa, Jr., Joe Gonzalez, Roberto Gutierrez, Wayne Alaniz Healy, Judithe Hernandez, Willie Herron, Gilbert "Magu" Lujan, George Rodriguez, Joe D. Rodriguez and Linda Vallejo.
