A Beautiful Introduction to Chicano/a Art Aug 9, 2003
"Contemporary Chicana and Chicano Art: Artists, Work, Culture, and Education" is a beautifully produced, two-volume introduction to the vibrant, sexy and often political genre of Chicano/a art. Many kudos to Bilingual Press for taking on this huge project. You will find the remarkable artwork of such artists as Rene Arceo, Connie Arismendi, Alma Lopez, and hundreds of others. The reproduced work jumps out at you with life and power. These two volumes were produced with the support of the Center for Latino Initiatives of The Smithsonian Institution, the Inter-University Program for Latino Research, and numerous art organizations. I highly recommend this set.
