About This Project

The Chicano Collection: Fine Art Prints by Modern Multiples features archival-quality digital prints (gicleés) of paintings by 26 prominent Chicano artists, including Frank Romero, John Valadez, Patssi Valdez, and Margaret Garcia. Depicting urban life and the Chicano experience between 1969 and 2001, the exhibition is the culmination of a one-year project designed to advance Chicano art as a recognized school of American art and to increase public accessibility to it. In addition to the fine art gicleés, it includes linocut portraits of the artists by artist Artemio Rodriguez and an original 53-minute documentary about Chicano art directed by Tamara Hernandez who also produced it with by Melissa Richardson Banks and Heather Flores. Funding was raised by CauseConnect.
