    Estampas de la Raza introduces recent gifts of contemporary Mexican American and Latino prints to the McNay from collectors Harriett and Ricardo Romo. More than 60 prints by 44 artists reveal the richness of a mixed cultural heritage, with depictions of Frida Kahlo, lowriders, tattoos, and the Virgin of Guadalupe. The exhibition focuses on aspects of the Latino experience in the United States: the celebration of a mixed "identity"; the Chicano Movement’s "struggle" to achieve sociopolitical equality; "tradition, memory, and culture" in the everyday lives of Latinos; Latino "icons"; and "other voices" suggesting the diversity of the community. Many images are larger than life, serving up a colorful, visual feast.
