"¡Adelante! Mexican American Artists: 1960s and Beyond," is a collection of works by an array of talented Mexican American artists, many who helped forge the Chicano Art Movement that began in the 1960's, as well as a number of the new generation of artists. This extraordinary exhibit includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, and photography

Not only did the Chicano Arts Movement seek social justice and equality for Mexican Americans, but it also sought to educate people of their rich heritage. The diverse art was fueled by heightened political activism and energized cultural pride, and remains as dynamic and complex as the individual life experiences of the artists that created it.

The influential artists who are participating in the exhibit include Judith F. Baca; Benjamin Botello; David Rivas Botello; Joseph Botello; Joe Bravo; Barbara Carrasco; Lupe Duarte; Yami Duarte; Ofelia Esparza; Paul G. Fuentes; Lalo García; Margaret García; Deanna Gomez; Elysa Gomez; Ignacio Gomez; Imelda Gomez; Yolanda González; Jaime Guerrero; Roberto Gutiérrez; Wayne Healy; Sergio Hernandez; jaxiejax (Jacqueline Sanders); Leo Limón; David A.
