Mexican Modernism in Context Session #4

Tuesday, January 05, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Mexican Modernism in Context Session #4: Chicano/a Muralism of Colorado 

At the peak of the Civil Rights Movement, Chicano/a artists sought to instill a sense of cultural pride in their neighborhoods throughout Colorado. Serving as cultural place makers, artists began to paint murals to define safe spaces in their communities after years of displacement and cultural abasement. In this fourth and final course session, discover how the Mexican Mural Movement inspired young activists/artists to use murals to describe with bold, vibrant imagery their sense of identity, family, and community. Discover the distinct Chicano/a mural aesthetic that developed to describe complex narratives to symbolize their heritage and ancestral roots in Colorado. 
Presented by Lucha Martínez de Luna, Director of Chicano/a Murals of Colorado Project, Curator of Latino Heritage at History Colorado, and Director of the O'na Tök Archaeological Project, Chiapas, Mexico.
