Chicano Dream

CHICANO DREAM at the Museum d’Aquitaine, Bordeaux, France

DATES: Friday, June 27, 2014 & Sunday, October 26, 2014

This is how it goes . . . much of the art exhibited here was part of the Cheech Marin art collection.  However, due to the space and presenting a more complete view of what a Chicano Dream is, art from the collection of Self Help Graphics & Art in East Los Angeles was added. That’s how I made the cut! 

A card stock paper skull designed by Daniel Gonzalez and assembled/decorated in red duct tape by me (Victoria Delgadillo)  was part of this Chicano Dream exhibit. Over the skull’s mouth is written “desaparecidas” –  for the disappeared woman of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. This red skull is from the collection of Self Help Graphics & Art and is part of the yearly Day of the Dead programming. (Note: I found these images on a The Aquitaine Museum’s feature page regarding what the Chicano Dream exhibit was offering–click the read more link below. No notation of my name as the artist, but nice to see that the themes of women’s lives and the crimes against females world-wide is critical in France too. )
