Join us for CHAC Gallery’s Grand Opening: In Honor of Alicia Cardenas, A Journey Through Generations, on Friday, June 3rd, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. CHAC is very grateful to be moving into our new home located in the 40 West Arts District at 1560 Teller St., Lakewood! In July of 2020, CHAC was unexpectedly forced to terminate its lease in the Santa Fe Arts District, due to the Covid pandemic. Since then, CHAC has partnered with other organizations and worked virtually to keep our organization alive. During this time, we were honored to have our CHAC artist, Alicia Cardenas, curate “Generations,” a multigenerational art exhibit in 2021. “Generations” highlighted the presence that Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x artists have in Denver. This summer, CHAC will honor Alicia Cardenas by continuing her legacy for our first show in the new space. Our multigenerational exhibit, “A Journey Through Generations,” will showcase elder and emerging artists and will explore how experiences of the past help nurture future generations. This exhibit is curated by CHAC artist, Rebecca Rozales and our board member, Sonia Del Real. This opening is in collaboration with Benchmark Theater.

Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC) is an inclusive community of all creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating, and reflecting the essence of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x and other multicultural/multiracial communities.

*About Alicia DeOlivera Cardenas (March 22, 1977-December 27th, 2021)

The owner of Denver’s quality tattooing and piercing business, Sol Tribe, Alicia, for over 25 years brought a spiritual and ritualistic focus to her work, rooted in her studies in cultural anthropology and her indigenous heritage. She unrelentingly pushed the tattooing and piercing industries to be more culturally responsive and respectful to indigenous roots, which are too often ignored. Moreover, she was a strident supporter of Chicano/a/x artists and LGBTQ equality.
