People who have saved this event:


For the past thirteen years, the dA Center for the Arts has presented Aztlán , an exploration of the roots of the Chicano/a art movement and the vast influences that Chicano/a culture has had on the southwestern United States and beyond.


This annual exhibition began in 2003, curated by Frank Garcia in tandem with artist and activist Gilbert “Magu” Lujan, a member of Los Four, an East L.A. artist group that was one of the vanguards of the Chicano/a art movement. An unfolding observation of the transformation of real cultures in a mythological land, Aztlán has evolved from a focus on original Mesoamerican first nations to include people and cultures from around the world. Aztlán: A Sense of Place will connect imagination, tradition and technology through works by artists including Jimmy Centeno, Margaret Garcia, Frank Romero, Nancy Romero, David Botello and Wayne Healy, among others, to provoke an engaging dialogue between individuals, communities, and institutions.
