Heritage and Place: Chicano Murals of Colorado

La Alma, Emanuel Martinez, painted in 1978, located at La Alma Recreation Center, Denver, Colorado

Join us for a talk by Dr. Lucha Martinez de Luna (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, Mexico) for a survey of the legacy of 1960s public art through which Chicano youth used symbols to describe their dynamic cultural heritage while recognizing social inequality and injustice.

The talk is presented as part of 7000 Fragments: Maya Murals from San Bartolo, Guatemala, a project of the Skidmore Faculty Scholar-in-Residence Heather Hurst, Associate Professor and Chair of Anthropology.

The project is supported by the Office of the Dean of Special Programs; The Center for Leadership, Teaching, and Learning; the Tang Teaching Museum; and the Dean of the Faculty/Vice President for Academic Affairs office.

This event is free and open to the public.
