somewhere over el arco iris: chicano landscapes; 1971–2015
MOLAA’s first exhibition to present works solely by Southern California-based Chicano artists, will introduce audiences to this unique school of American art through a series of landscapes spanning 40 years. The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, photographs, mixed media works and rare studies by artists such as Carlos Almaraz, Yolanda González, Gronk, Wayne Alaniz Healy, Ramses Noriega, Frank Romero, Jamex and Einar de la Torre, John Valadez, Patssi Valdez, Shizu Saldamando, Roberto Gutiérrez, Jose Ramírez, and Ana Serrano. In addition, street artists Man One, Jaime “Germs” Zacarias, Vyal Reyes, and Johnny KMDZ Rodríguez have been invited to create new, original artworks—inspired by some of the works on view in the exhibition—to convey the breadth and relevance of today’s Chicano art.
