Saturday morning in the hood.
FIELD NOTES: UNLV commencement ceremonies were held today and I would like to acknowledge my official committee, and an unofficial underground committee. Though conversations or pointed questions this MFA became a reconciliation of writings and practice on Mexican muralism, Chicano Art, and how it relates to street art and contemporary art. Without them the research would not have been as successful or insightful, and just less fun . . . Official UNLV Committee: Chair, Dave Rowe; Committee was Robert Tracy, Aya McDonald and Sean Clark . . . Unofficial Underground Committee: Jim Daichendt (Point Loma Nazarene), Leonard Folgarait (Vanderbilt); Amy Hood, (The Getty); and Andrea LaPage (Washington and Lee University). Special thanks to Judy Baca.
