Tierra Y Libertad, Segundo de Febrero Exhibit
commemorating the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848)
February 1 thru February 28, 2014
Since 1977, Centro Cultural Aztlan has produced and presented the annual Segundo de Febrero Commemoration in an effort to preserve Mexican American history and culture. February 2 was coined as Segundo de Febrero, a day to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The signing of the Treaty on February 2, 1848, ended the Mexico/U.S. War and began what has now been 166 years of peace between the two countries. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo also established the new American southwest and the Mexican American community. It is the only Mexican American Treaty in existence, and it is our hope that one day February 2 will be recognized as a national holiday and enjoy the same support given to Martin Luther King, Jr., Day and Cesar Chavez Day.
Artist Raul Servin leads a group exhibition for the 2014 Segundo de Febrero Commemoration, titled Tierra Y Libertad, that includes new works by artists Jose Segura, Martin Emmanuel Rangel, Victor Tello, Jesús Morón, Fernando Campos, Lucero Ayala, Ramiro Chapa, Monica Ramirez, Tomas Yong Wong, Sandra Estrada, Andy Villarreal, Yenifer Gaviña, Jose Esquivel, Robert Wilkens, Lupe Muñoz, Hector Garza, Israel Rico, Carolina G. Flores, Rosa Fernandez, Fany Mares, and Ramón Vasquéz y Sánchez.
The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, is on view throughout the month of February and during the scheduled hours of the On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour. Viewing hours are M-F 10AM-5PM.
