Claudia Zapata: The Chicano Art Landscape
Sunday, October 13 at 2:30 pm
Why is the diversification of individuals in the creative field necessary and vital to understanding the ever-changing contemporary art landscape? While Claudia Zapata, Curator of Exhibitions and Programs at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, may not have all the answers, she is ready to answer questions and discuss her experiences thus far as an entrepreneur, curator, editor and visual artist. Claudia received her B.A. and M.A. from the University of Texas in Art History, specializing in Pre-Columbian and U.S. Latino/Chicano art. Zapata recently received the Mexican American Cultural Center Award of Excellence, Service in the Latino Cultural Arts, and her recent projects include the co-founding of ChingoZine, a Latino art zine, and the Puro Chingon Collection, a Latino art collective.
