Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to present the 41stannual Segundo de Febrero exhibition. This year, Centro Aztlan’s exhibition is entitled, “Borrando Fronteras,” Erasing Borders.

Centro Cultural Aztlan has produced and presented the annual Segundo de Febrero exhibit since 1978 in an effort to preserve Mexican American history and culture.  This exhibit commemorates the 171stanniversary of the signing of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the ending of the U.S. Mexican war, and the redistribution of a border—creating a new bicultural citizenry with a new consciousness of Mexican American dual identity, history, culture, and traditions.

The inspiration for this year’s show—Borrando Fronteras—is the lasting effects of the broken treaty, especially the creation of new borders and the lasting effects it has had on Latinos/as/xs, Chicanos/as/xs, and indigenous peoples. Inspiration from past and present events will result in a visual dialog of Chicano/a/x, Latino/a/x, and indigenous identity; and a reflection of the sentiment toward border issues and current events.

Join us at the opening reception on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 6:00-9:00pmfor light refreshments, music by El Tallercito de Son, Juan y Armando Tejada, plus a special ethno-drama by Los Inocentes showcasing the life of Juana Navarro. Free and open to the entire community.

The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be on view through Thursday, February 28, 2019 Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm. 

Participating artists include:

David Blancas, Sarah Castillo, Rosa Flores Fernandez, Ana Hernandez, Rhys Munro, Jason Eric Gonzalez Martinez, Jessica Gonzales, Maria Jessica Alvarado, Doroteo Albert Garza, Rudy Herrera, Robert Wilkens, Guadalupe "Spike" Muñoz, Abigail Marquez, Angelica Mayorga Gomez, Mary Agnes Rodriguez, Raul Servin, Gloria Sanchez Hart, Nancy Klapp, Israel Rico, Mario Garza, and more.
