Voces de Aztlán: Chicana/o Urban Art 9/21/2015 12:00:00 AM
Voces de Aztlán: Chicana/o Urban Art
Artwork by Dignidad Rebelde (Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza), Janet Diaz and Rosalie López
In today’s Chicana/o culture, Aztlán signifies an important symbol of spiritual and national unity, and it is often associated with the territories ceded to the United States by Mexico with the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo in 1848. The artists in this exhibition are Chicana/os from different regions of Aztlán. The works featured include images of everyday life, politically motivated activist posters and sculptural works, all of which address issues concerning the contemporary Chicana/o. The artists have a strong affinity for printmaking because of its ability to create multiples, which allows them to spread their message to a wide audience. This democratic approach to art making not only strengthens their ideas and concepts, but more importantly becomes a voice for underrepresented Latino communities. Curated by Professor Rogelio Gutierrez, ASU-School of Art. Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.

Reconstruction 10/4/2015 12:00:00 AM
Reconstruction
This exhibition by artist Rogelio Gutierrez uses street sign aesthetics to explore issues of language, culture, and acceptance. Where and when is it okay to speak a certain language? Many Latinos in the United States face these questions on a daily basis due to today’s hostile immigration system and politicians who seek to exploit this community for their personal gain.   Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
