Wanted: Images of the Chicano Scene, Past and Present


If you were a witness to Chicano history, we want your pictures! The Autry National Center is producing an event at the Museum of the American West that pays homage to the Chicano music scene. "Si Se Puede! Bailar, Cantar, Perdurar" will feature Chicano music greats LALO GUERRERO and QUETZAL, as well as artists, poets, community organizations, and Chicano vendors.

We are especially looking for candid shots of people, places, and events related to the Chicano culture scene throughout the southwestern United States, including concerts, protests, historical events, art shows, festivals, and other important celebrations and occasions.

Chosen images will be included in the Chicano Scene section on the Center?s website and then projected onto a huge 8-by-15-foot screen on the night of the event. Please include captions for all images. Tell us who, what, when, and where!
