Haven't seen Israel Campos's exhibition yet??

Swing by on Friday, May 17 during LexArts HOP to check out his show, and stay for a special screening of Sylvia Morales’ experimental documentary film CHICANA (1979). 

The film traces the history of Chicana and Mexican women from pre-Columbian times to the present. It covers women's role in Aztec society, their participation in the 1810 struggle for Mexican independence, their involvement in the US labor strikes in 1872, their contributions to the 1910 Mexican revolution and their leadership in contemporary civil rights causes. Using murals, engravings and historical footage, CHICANA shows how women have become an active and vocal part of the political and work life in both Mexico and the United States.
