When: Tue., Feb. 2, 6-9 p.m. and Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 29 2016
Monday is the 167th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the U.S.-Mexican War, extended the border to the Rio Grande and gave the U.S. control over 500,000 square miles that now comprise the Southwest. Each year, Centro Cultural Aztlan commemorates this event with a “Segundo de Febrero” art show designed to spark dialogue about the nature of the bi-cultural consciousness. This year’s exhibit is curated by artist Jeff Hull — whose work explores Mexican- American identity — and will feature the work of more than 35 other artists. Lead Artist and Curator Jeff Hull, along with local and regional artists and poets honor the diverse contributions of Mexican Americans in the Arts and other fields with a group exhibition and poetry readings.
