This in-gallery discussion looks at specific works in Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945 to explore representations of Indigenous people. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and contribute to a conversation that will critically examine how stereotypes and mythologies play a central role in Mexican muralism and works by American artists from this period. The program is led by Rick Chavolla and Elizabeth Hutchinson.

Rick Chavolla (Kumeyaay) is an educator and Board Chair of the American Indian Community House.
