Dear Museo Supporters and General Public,

We regret to announce the passing away of Javier Quezada Peña, Sr., artist and humanitarian, this past weekend in Houston, Texas. He was a long-time volunteer and artist-in-residence of Museo Guadalupe Aztlan, Houston, Texas. I recieved a call from his surviving son, Javier Quezada, Jr., of his passing away at his home.

Even at his advanced years of age, Mr. Quezada Peña, Sr. was a dedicated volunteer who was un hombre de palabra. He toured with our Museo to many locations, such as the University of North Texas, Tarrant Community College, Laredo Community College, and others.

For one of our Annual Dia de los Mu***os Celebration, he prepared some calacas to exhibit at schools. His appears in the attachment above.

In closing, the passing of Mr. Javier Quezada Peña, Sr. leaves a deep void at our Museo, I remember him as a smiling and positive-minded artist. See these two Youtube videos to learn more about this rare artist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIX7gQsX5xg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALjCsw7zxXI

Atentamente,

Jesus Cantu Medel

Executive Director
Museo Guadalupe Aztlan

Post datum: We also regret the passing of Mr. Victor Zambrano this past weekend who last exhibited with our Museo this spring 2014.

Our Museo Offers Best Wishes to Victor Zambrano,
Artist Extraordinaire
June 9, 2014

As our Museo prepares for the exit exhibit at HCC-Northline for Victor Zambrano’s exhibit titled The Almighty Gold, Espacios Emocionales, we take this opportunity to express our deepest wishes that he overcomes his current medical challenge, as he is currently interned at a hospital in Houston, Texas. I had the opportunity to visit him today, Monday, June 9, 2014, and I met his father and mother.

As a gesture that he improves, our Museo will provide a traditional Chippewa drumming ceremony, led by Daniel Antoon, a member of this Nation, and we welcome you to offer your prayers should you wish to participate from 6-9:00 pm Wednesday, June 11, 2014.

In closing, we reiterate our concern for Mr. Zambrano’s situation, and we hope divine intervention regarding his case. Victor Zambrano: Presente! Que Dios lo endiga/May God bless him.

Thanks,
Jesus Cantu Medel
Executive Director
Museo Guadalupe Aztlan

It is with deep regret that the Serie Project announces the passing of its

Founder, the Chicano painter and printmaker, cultural activist and arts

Educator Sam Z. Coronado.


Born in Ennis, Texas on July 12, 1946 to parents Sam Zaragosa and Margarita Coronado, Sam Z. Coronado voluntarily enlisted and served in the Army between 1964 and 1967. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, where he co-founded the Chicano Art Students Association, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1975.


Following a successful career in commercial illustration, Coronado turned to cultural activism. He founded Houston's Arcoiris, a state-wide network of Latina/o artists, in 1980. Together with visual artists Sylvia Orozco and Pio Pulido, Coronado co-founded Austin's Mexic-Arte Museum in 1984. During this time, he also owned a private gallery named Cibola Studio on 5th Street in Austin.
