History of Chicano Art & Artists with Kathy Gallegos of Avenue 50 Studio

This presentation will build from significant, and at times insignificant, world events that influenced the development of a new art form known as Chicano Art. We will then explore a few of the most important art organizations rising from the racial justice struggles of the 60-70s. Understanding world events, lays the foundation to an understanding of those artists who were at the forefront of the struggle for a Chicano identity. The presentation will end with a brief analysis of the continuing struggles of contemporary Chicano artists, identifying those who are currently defining Chicano Art.

Kathy Gallegos is the owner and founder of Avenue 50 Studios, a multicultural alternative art space in Highland Park with an emphasis on Chicano and Latino art. Born in New York, Gallegos moved to the San Fernando Valley early in life and considers herself an Angeleno both in heart and soul. She is a former musician, a lifelong artist, and since 1999, an impromptu gallery owner when she founded the Avenue 50 Studio in order to give artists a venue where their voice could be heard. In 2014, she was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown as a Council member on the Board of the California Arts Council.
