Plaza de Cultura Y Arte Presents Patriotism in Conflict

November 5, 2021 – June 22, 2022

Marking fifty-one years since the National Chicano Moratorium took place in East Los Angeles, where more than 30,000 participants marched to protest the Vietnam War, LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes presents Patriotism in Conflict: Fighting for Country and Comunidad. This exhibition recounts the momentum and critical events that led to one of the most influential demonstrations in Chicana/o history and inspired a generation of sociopolitical activism.

Included in the exhibition is a new work of mine along with a mural installation in the window of the museum by my art collective 3B
