Ralph Maradiaga | Sun in Scorpio
An Unerring Gift of Leadership

The exhibition features the art of one of Galería’s co-founders, the late Ralph Maradiaga, and is guest-curated by Dr. Amalia Mesa-Bains.

Opening Reception: October 4 | 6pm - 9pm

In observance of Galería de la Raza’s 44th anniversary, we pause to honor and reflect on the contributions and visions of one of our own: Ralph Maradiaga. His unerring gift of leadership combined with his own unique talents and skills contributed greatly to the broader understanding of Chicano/Latino art and subsequently cemented the Latino presence on both the national and international art scenes.
