Gilbert "Magu" Lujan - leader of the Chicano Art Movement
Gilbert "Magu" Lujan was a great spirit and a founder of the Chicano Art movement. He never deterred from his initial goal of presenting the Chicano Experience as an integral component of American Society.
His concept of Chicano Art was not based on the idea that Chicano Art was alien to the American Experience, but an integral component of continuing contributions that Americans of Mexican descent have made to the creation of the United States of America, from Aztlan's initial "Donativo" contributions to the colonies that tipped the scales in the Revolutionary War to the contributions of Latino soldiers in the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Nam, etc. and now the battle to be recognized as an International Population that the USA has ignored (no thanks to Obama).
Yes, this is a POLITICAL statement. Don Magu will always be remembered by the thousands of people that he touched. But, most of all, his legacy of Aztlan and the dreams for the future of our children in Aztlan will be a guide for all of us to follow.
