Still image from Carmen Lomas Garza: Looking Back

Carmen Lomas Garza is a Chicana artist who creates images about the lives of Mexican Americans based on her memories and experiences growing up in South Texas. The roots of her artwork lay with her family traditions and in the Chicano Movement of the '60s and '70s. Since her parents were active politically, she followed in their footsteps by organizing Chicanos on her college campus. She later wrote that this work nourished her goal of being an artist and gave her back her voice. Her creations helped her heal the wounds inflicted by discrimination and racism.
