Focus on Chicano Art: Gronk's Theater of Paint and Patssi Valdez

Explore the work of legendary Chicano artist Gronk, whose work is currently on view at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles. Visitors are invited to be active participants, moving through a "theater of paint" and interacting with props.

Pair with ¡del Corazón! Latino Voices in American Art, an interactive website that features Patssi Valdez, one of Gronk’s fellow collaborators in the iconic Chicano artist’s collective Asco. Resources for teachers are available under the "Profesores" section of the site.
