A Look Back: Mapping Another LA: The Chicano Art Movement

This archived exhibition explores the 1970’s Chicano art movement in East Los Angeles. With the establishment of the first Chicano art gallery in East Los Angeles, Chicano artists initiated a collective reimagining the urban landscape through such media as photography, graphic arts, murals, painting, and sculpture. These artists mapped another L.A., harnessing their work as part of a social protest and community empowerment movement.
