Murals became an essential form of artist response and public voice during the Chicano protests of the 1960s and 1970s. They were a means of expressing both pride and frustration, and challenging the status quo, at a time when other channels of communication were limited for the Mexican American community.

Through photography, sketches, related art works, and ephemera, ¡Murales Rebeldes! tells the stories of murals—by artists Barbara Carrasco, Sergio O'Cadiz Moctezuma, Yreina Cervántez and Alma López, Roberto Chavez, Willie Herrón III, East Los Streetscapers mural collective, and Ernesto de la Loza—whose messages were almost lost forever...

¡Murales Rebeldes! examines the iconography, content, and artistic strategies of eight Chicana/o murals that made others uncomfortable to the point of provoking a contrary response, delving into the murals' creation and disturbing history of obstruction.

This exhibition was produced by the California Historical Society in San Francisco, in partnership with LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in Los Angeles.
