Valley Arts Group members are invited to attend Images of Resilience: Chicana/o Art and its Mexican Roots, at the Whatcom Museum’s Lightcatcher Building on March 30, 2017. The exhibition explores the development of Chicana/o art, from its beginnings in Mexican art of the early 1900s, to the Chicana/o movement of the 1960s and ’70s, to its relevance today. Available for viewing upstairs will be The Katrina Decade: Images of an Altered City, a photo exhibition featuring the haunting black-and-white images of New Orleans based photographer David G. Spielman.
The docent led tour will begin at 1:30 PM. The Artifacts Cafe and Wine Bar will be open for lunch for those wishing to meet before the tour. Sign-up sheets will be available at the March 11 open house.
