Opening Reception

Acción Latina’s Juan R. Fuentes Gallery

Juana Alicia’s work is associated with the greatest artistic and political achievements of the Chicano movement. Her sculptural and painted public works can be seen in Nicaragua, Mexico, Pennsylvania, and in many parts of California, with a large body of public work in San Francisco, centered in the Mission District. Juana Alicia’s works include many types of media, including traditional acrylic murals, true fresco, mosaic tile, and ceramic relief sculpture murals. She is also an accomplished printmaker and studio painter.

With this exhibition she will showcase more than 20 original murals, drawings and prints spanning across the four decades of illustrious career. This will be Juana Alicia’s final exhibition in the U.S. before she relocates to Mexico.

The pachanga officially starts at 7pm sharp! Oldies but goodies will be performed by the women of Chulita Vinyl Club. There will be a no-host bar and light refreshments with all donations going to support the Juan Fuentes Gallery and El Tecolote. For more information please visit the Facebook event page.
