The dA CENTER FOR THE ARTS is honored to host a benefit art exhibition for one of the most influential figures in the Chicano Art movement, Gilbert “Magu” Luján.
On August 13, the exhibition will open to the public during Pomona’s Second Saturday Art Walk. Items will be offered at many price levels, so everyone can “take home a Magu.” Please join us in celebrating and preserving his legacy.
Come back on August 27 for an afternoon of music in celebration of an amazing man and his expansive collection of work. The closing reception will feature musical performances by Conjunto Los Pochos, singer/songwriter/artist Eloy Torrez and more!
We cordially invite collectors to attend a special preview reception on Friday August 12, 2011 at 7:00-9:00 p.m. to get early access to some of Magu’s never before shown original artworks. Enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres to the mellow music of Maria Elena Gaitan aka “Chola con Cello.” Reserve your tickets now.
All proceeds from the events will go to support the preservation of Gilbert “Magu” Luján’s artistic legacy. Any donations toward the benefit exhibition are tax deductible through the dA CENTER FOR THE ARTS, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
