This beautifully produced book showcases nearly 120 works of Chicana and Chicano art and provides a good representation of the art movement for general readers and students. Created in part as a catalog for the 2004 exhibition of the same name, the book is also designed to serve as a useful tool for teaching Chicana/o art from the elementary grades through graduate school as well as for the novice adult. Art aficionados will relish the striking full-color images in this coffee-table-quality volume. Themes include community values, borders and biculturalism, spirituality, personal feelings and shared experiences, cultural icons, and nontraditional representations.
This volume is an outgrowth of the highly successful project Contemporary Chicana and Chicano Art: Artists, Works, Culture and Education, published in 2002. That two-volume compilation was the winner in the fine art category of the 2003 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
