Chapman University is one of 70 institutions in Southern California that is participating in Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA—an initiative of the Getty in which arts institutions across Southern California will join together to explore the vast subject of Latin American and Latino Art in dialogue with Los Angeles this fall. Chapman is one of only four institutions in Orange County participating and will feature exhibits on and around the campus showcasing a variety of art created by Latino and Latina artists. The exhibit opens September 13, 2017, and runs through January 5, 2018. The title of the project is: My Barrio: Emigdio Vasquez and Chicana/o Identity in Orange County.
“Chapman is so pleased to be a part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA,” said Natalie Lawler, curator of art collections at Chapman University. “We are looking forward to highlighting Emigdio Vasquez as our hometown hero in Orange, as well as the continued relevance of his work today.”
