Among Chicano art circles, Frank Romero is a living legend. An original member of '70s Latino art group Los Four, Romero brought new weight to muralism by adding political undercurrents to his visual representations of Latino life in Los Angeles, such as the iconic “Death of Ruben Salazar,” mural memorializing the death of eponymous LA Times journalist during the Chicano civil rights movement. So the Museum of Latin American Art is right to host a retrospective of the Boyle Heights-born artist's work, which will feature a comprehensive look at the artist's 50 year career. Not only did Romero dive into painting, but sculpture, printmaking, and ceramics as well, as shown in this exquisite solo exhibit.
