La Gente de California: A Historical Perspective

Saturday, July 17, 1976 - Tuesday, August 17, 1976

An exhibition produced by Rene Yañez, Ralph Maradiaga and Jose Antonio Burciaga, in collaboration with the California Historical Society. The exhibition was comprised of documentation examining the transformation of the California landscape with the introduction of Chilean miners and their new techniques. An examination of California Missions as well as heroes and mythological figures such as Tiburcio Vasquez, Joaquin Murieta and Zorro were also included in order to shed light on the ways in which Latino icons have historically been depicted.
