Last year, as part of my "Gustavo's Awesome Lecture Series!" at the Fullerton Public Library, I was supposed to do a one-on-one with legendary Chicano muralist Emigdio Vasquez, whose murals are slowly fading away in the barrios of Orange County and from the county's memory. Unfortunately, Vasquez had to move to Arizona for health reasons, so that couldn't happen. Nevertheless, I wanted to host something showcasing Vasquez--and not only are we doing it next Wednesday, we're also going to showcase the work of his fellow legend, Sergio O'Cadiz.

Speaking on Vaquez and O'Cadiz are folks very familiar with their work. For Vasquez, Fullerton College professor Jerry Padilla will lecture on his friend's contributions to art in OC; doing the same for her father is Dr. Maria del Pilar O'Cadiz, whose day job is at UCI's Department of Education.

O'Cadiz will have slides of his father's work, while Padilla will bring along some Vasquez originals. Show starts at 6:30--see you there!

 Great.  More murals of Chavez and day laborers.  How original.  Orozco could eat this guy for breakfast and wash him down with a slug of pulque.

 Emigdio's works are more inspirational.  Is that the best pic that you could take/find?

@Geronimo Jigaga ...such a strange comment, as if the Arts were a sport.

How about you post something? Better yet, why don't you leave your lair and attend this event?

Good luck.  You are competing with reruns of Jose Luis.

True! he has tons of pictures on the web. This picture of a defaced mural is uninspiring.
