19 Oct “Papel Chicano Dos” Book
Dating from late 1980s to present day, the 65 artworks featured in this art book range from watercolor paintings and aquatints to pastel drawings and mixed media. The iconic imagery by the 24 featured artists is influenced by pre-Hispanic symbols, post-revolutionary nationalistic Mexican motifs, the Chicano movement of the 1960s, and contemporary urban culture. While published to accompanying a traveling exhibition with the same name, the book is perfect on its own, with full-page color images and biographical information on the featured artists.
