"Make 'Em All Mexican" (2012)

Artist Linda Vallejo displayed both sacred and pop Western icons and re-appropriated them to be Latinos. These transformed characters bring questions of race and class to the forefront.

This solo exhibition was part of a larger exhibiton, "PERSPECTIVES" which offered an array of perspectives on topics pertaining mostly, but not limited to, Mexico and Mesoamerica, in a variety of narratives, multiple layers of meanings and intimate reflections upon cultural, racial, social and political matters.

Festival de Calaveras Virtual Exhibition

Did you know the skull imagery for Día de los Mu***os is deeply influenced by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada’s famous etchings and illustrations?

Posada's calaveras were a critique of the society that surrounded the artist's life (1852-1913). His illustrations were political satirizations of the Mexican society of his time, where the artist caricatured and exposed class habits through his skull drawings and etchings.

After Posada's death in 1913, his calaveras became a symbol for Día de Los Mu***os. La calavera Catrina, originally calavera Garbancera, was a social critique of those who wanted to look up to the European bourgeoisie and despised their own Mexican-ness.

When I went to Community College at VVC, I first heard of this gallery "about 18 years ago". Now I'm back in Southern California and have completed my BA at San Francisco State University. WOW !!!! The gallery here on the campus has grown a lot!!! I plan to visit after the lock downs. VERY EXCITING!!!!
Right on our own backyard
Please share this information with friends and animal lovers that may be able to help. The San Bernardino City Shelter has over 100 cats and kittens in need of homes. This high number puts many at risk of euthanasia. Please pass this information on and ask others to share as well. Any help is greatly appreciated.
