Bold Caballeros y Noble Bandidas:
I have a piece of artwork on exhibit in Los Angeles at the Autry National Center of the American West. The piece will be on display for the museum’s Bold Caballeros y Noble Bandidas (Bold Horsemen and Noble Bandits) exhibit. The exhibit will remain on display though May 10, 2009. My work and the work of other artists are part of a juried, invitational exhibition showcasing the roles of Latinos in the American West, as cross-cultural influences.
My childhood heroes and my heritage are what inspire my artwork. The piece on display at the Autry Center is a reflection of me, as the Cisco Kid during my childhood adventures and my love for nopales (prickly pear cactus). The piece titled El Cisco Kid: The Original Nopalista is a serigraph monoprint, which is part of a series based on my admiration of the Cisco Kid. Another piece in the series, El Cisco Kid 2 is also featured in a book “The Cisco Kid,” American Hero, Hispanic Roots by Francis M. Nevins and Gary D. Keller; the book will also be part of the exhibit. Learn more about the exhibit at www.autrynationalcenter.org/future_exhibitions.php.
My depiction of the Cicso Kid is ideal for the Autry Center because it is an example of the museum’s mission of connecting the past of the old American West with the present. I accomplish this through the use of vivid colors and expression, further proof of my great respect for the legendary good guy. As a child, I wore a hat, had the plastic guns, wore boots and ran around telling everyone I was El Cisco Kid.
The Autry National Center of the American West is the core of three institutions: the Museum of the American West, the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, and the Institute for the Study of the American West. The Bold Caballeros y Noble Bandidas exhibit focuses on the Latino experience and the interplay of fact and fantasy in the depiction of Latina and Latino “noble bandits”. All over the world, stories and folktales are told about certain bandits, who stood for social justice.
The Autry was established in 2003 after merging with the Southwest Museum, the Women of the West Museum and the Museum of the American West (formerly the Autry Museum of Western Heritage). Innovative exhibitions, a broad range of programs and extensive collection of art and artifacts, the center explores the distinct stories and interactions of they people and cultures of the American West. The museum is located in Los Angeles California. For more information on the Bold Caballeros y Noble Bandidas exhibit or other exhibits please visit www.autrynationalcenter.org.
