Chicano culture


Though March 23, view a series of large silk-screen prints by artist and writer Carlos Francisco Jackson, assistant professor of Chicana/Chicano Studies at the University of California at Davis, and director of Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer, a community art center in Woodland, Calif. Jackson explores the story that he and others live, or have lived, on the border of two countries, both literally and metaphorically. In his new book, Chicana and Chicano Art: ProtestArte, Jackson explores the history, development and present-day flowering of Chicana and Chicano visual arts. Mark your calendars for Feb. 17 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Brookens Auditorium to hear Jackson talk, sponsored by the ECCE Speaker Lecture Series. A reception follows from 6:30-8 p.m. in the arts gallery. Both events are free and open to the public.
