Other Footprints to Aztlan


Other Footprints to Aztlan; Works from the Collection of Mary and Armando Durón
Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC)
Venice, CA
October 13—November 30, 2001

By having the resources to collect art, Mary and Armando Durón become privileged to speak for a people who are otherwise voiceless, especially in a place where Chicano art does not have a permanent public space where collective decisions can be made about what is representative about it. With this exhibition, they alone are left to make this decision at this time – driven as they have been from the beginning by their quest for Aztlan.
