The latest is 'Chain Reaction: Chicano/a and Latino/a Art in Colorado,'" begins an article in Denver, Colorado's Westword. "The dialogue began locally in the spring of 2005 with 'Leaving Aztlán' at the Center for Visual Art in LoDo. That show was guest-curated by Kaytie Johnson, who works at the Richard E. Peeler Art Center at DePauw University. It was Johnson who posited the idea of a post-Chicano sensibility emerging out of Chicano art."

"'Leaving Aztlán' was fabulous in highlighting how styles have changed since Chicano art was launched," writes Michael Paglia.
