Book Party for Malaquias Montoya
Friday, December 9, 2011, 6pm
EastSide Cultural Center, 2277 International Blvd, Oakland
Cultural scholar and activist Terezita Romo has authored the first extended monograph of the life and work of Malaquias Montoya, the revolutionary printmaker and painter who was one of the great influences of the Chicano Arts Movement of the 60’s and 70’s. In 2000, Malaquias spent a semester as Visiting Professor in the Art Department at the University of Notre Dame, in Indiana, and he currently holds the title of Visiting Fellow in the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame.
Come meet the artist and author at our public reception and book party where we will host a dialogue between Montoya and Romo. The artist will also have prints on display and for sale, as well as the book.
