Chicano art movement and Carlos Almaraz

A collection of sources on the art movement as a whole and one of the major artists within the Chicano Street art era, Carlos Almaraz) for the intended use of providing a variety of resources that give a deeper look into this particular era. EDI (equity, diversity, and inclusion) is addressed in the sense that the topic is one that is often overlooked by the need to focus on the Eurocentric focused movements in art history, and the inclusion of more diversity within this field is important as it allows students to see POC artists being recognized.
