SANTA ANA– The OC Film Fiesta invites you to join us for a free tribute program Visions Of Magulandia: The California Journey Of Chicano Artist Gilbert ‘Magu’ Lujan From Los Four To Mental Menudo, in association with UCI’s Aztlan to Magulandia exhibit, which is part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time LA/LA initiative. The artist Gilbert Lujan, known as Magu, was a member of the seminal Chicano art group Los Four, which included Carlos Almaraz, Frank Romero and Roberto de la Rocha. Magu’s work is known for his brightly colored style, whimsical approach and use of stylized lowriders cars, laughing dogs and playful cultural iconography to create an idealized world known as Magulandia. An admired artist and teacher who started his life as a boxer, Magu passed away in 2011. Visions Of Magulandia will feature a screening of rare and never-before-seen videos of the artist, a panel discussion, and a recreation of one of Magu’s storied “Mental Menudo” community discussions. This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org. Additional support provided by Santa Ana College and UCI. This event is free and open to the public.
Sunday, Oct. 8 from 1-6pm Santa Ana College Main Art Gallery Fine Arts Building “C” 1530 W 17th St. Santa Ana, CA 92706
