DESCRIPTION

The Centro Cultural de la Raza and Cal A. Vera presents

SACRILEGE!
Desecration, Destruction and Deconstruction
of Chican@ Heroes, Idols and Icons

To resurrect we must first destroy what we hold sacred. Like the Phoenix to the flame Chicanismo will be reborn anew to live again. 

Join curator Cal A. Vera and a group of talented Chican@ artists from Arizona, Tejas and Califas as they attempt to get sacrilegious with their heroes, idols and icons.
