Current Events



Centro Cultural Aztlan is proud to present Nosotras: Perceptions of Identity.  Curated by RitaMaria Contreras, this exhibition presents facets of identity from a diverse group of artists.

In the words of artist Kathy Vargas, these identities are “constructed.”  The term ‘construction’ conjures up images of physical, proactive measures taken to create space for themselves as artists.  By definition, these women are forces to be reckoned with.  The results speak for themselves.

Participating artists include:

Carrie Avery, Bernice Appelin-Williams, Michelle Belto, Giovanna Carrola, Barbara Felix, Joan Frederick, Robin Gara, Deborah Keller-Rihn, Norma Jean Moore, Thelma Muraida, Pájara Nohpalli Napoli, Diana Rodriguez Gil, Anita Valencia, Kathy Vargas, Liliana Wilson, and Terry Ybañez

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, is on view throughout the month of March and April.

Viewing hours are M-F 10AM-5PM.
