Adelante Comunidad: New exhibit showcases four decades of graphic arts by the Stanford Chicanx & Latinx community
Adelante Comunidad opens this week in the South Lobby of the East Wing of Green Library. The exhibit, which draws on posters and other materials from the collections of the Stanford University Archives, celebrates over four decades of graphic arts produced by the Stanford Chicanx and Latinx community. Many of the posters were transferred from El Centro Chicano y Latino earlier this year, and highlight educational events and speaking series sponsored by El Centro, and Stanford MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán).
