Make sure to do this from a campus computer or after you have authenticated off-campus/remotely as you will then be automatically associated to the Regis Library’s access rights, meaning that remote access to link.springer.com is set up immediately.

Mi Frontera Es Su Frontera – Tony Ortega exhibit

November 1, 2012

Mi Frontera Es Su Frontera – Tony Ortega
November 1 – November 29, 2012, The Hartman Art Gallery in the Dayton Memorial Library
November 8, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. – opening reception

Chicano artist Tony Ortega has long been renowned for creating paintings chronicling the Latino experience. Utilizing a signature style of bold coloration, simplified forms, anonymous figures, and cultural icons, he explores community, family, street life, labor, entertainment, youth culture, popular culture, and cultural politics. While in the past his work has been more focused on the sociological interactions of community than on identity politics, the influences of social movements, historical precedents, and a long tradition of visual representation are profound. To Ortega, the border is porous, with layered implications. In “Mi Frontera Es Su Frontera”, through the use of monotype/silkscreens, charcoal drawings, hand-colored etchings, and a mural installation, Ortega offers a timely glimpse of the melding of histories, traditions, culture, and politics of our ever-expanding and diversified population.
