ARTIST INFORMATIONBIO  

Consuelo Jimenez-Underwood

Fiber artist and weaver Consuelo Jiménez Underwood is the daughter of migrant agricultural workers —a Chicana mother and a father of Huichol Indian descent. Weaving historical, social and personal references, her creative process and content speak of cultural resistance and spirituality. Her work is in the collections of the Oakland Art Museum, CA; the American Art Museum of the Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC; and the Museum of Art and Design in New York City. She has degrees in religious studies and art, and is a tenured professor at San Jose State University, CA.
