Dear TANA Participants and Community Members,
We would like to inform you about Malaquias Montoya’s show in the EastSide Cultural Center. The exhibiton is titled Al Empezar Malaquias Montoya & The 60s/70s Chicano Arts Movement, and will be up until the end of this month.
A reception for this exhibition took place on August 25, 2013 between Malaquias Montoya and Carlos Montes (Brown Berets) and was moderated by Terezita Romo. This event was the first event hosted by EastSide Cultural Center to kick off Xicana/o Moratorium Day.
