Lagrimas y Sonrisas: The First (Re)Generation Exhibit


This exhibition launched The ReGeneration Project, the emerging generation of Chicano/a and Latino/a artists and cultural workers at Galería de la Raza. Amalia Mesa-Bains first conceptualized the (Re)Generation Project as a means to train young Latina/o artists for careers in the arts and to share the experiences of 'Movimiento' artists in an informal mentorship situation. In the process, the ReGeneration Program has become an essential forum and vital venue for on-going interaction and dialogue between generations.
