DESCRIPTION

“Make ‘Em All Mexican” uses social and political satire to address what I believe to be the Latino/Mexican-American/Chicano conundrum this group faces in the wake of trying to live the “American Dream.”  Using mixed media, Ms. Vallejo takes some of the most revered images in American/Western culture and de-constructs them to create a new cultural icon.
