The Legacy of César Chávez Explored at Fort Worth Exhibition


Fort Worth, TX, March 19, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Texas documentary photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza's photography exhibition, "Documenting the Legacy of César Estrada Chávez," opens March 30 at the Fort Worth Central Library. The program is sponsored by the César Chávez Committee of Tarrant County and runs through April 30, 2015.

The public is invited to a family-friendly artist reception on April 14 at 6 p.m., hosted by Richard Gonzales and Alejando Hukill of the César Chávez Committee of Tarrant County. The photographer will give a short presentation and answer audience questions.

The 31 black and white photographs were captured from 1970 to 1975. During this period, Garza took intimate photographs of Chicano icons César E. Chávez, Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzáles and others. The photographs provide a retrospective glimpse from the unique perspective of the photographer and activist. Prints from the series have been exhibited on both coasts, Texas, Mexico City, Bordeaux and also been featured on the cover and pages of journals and books.

Midwestern State University Professor Dr. Ann Marie Leimer adds, “During the past decades, Garza has extensively published and exhibited several documentary photographic series. The Chicano Photographer series explores important aspects of the American experience, historic events and cultural practices often marginalized by the dominant culture.”
